On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Diagnostics Travel Award, Dr. Dimple Chudasama, who will be supported with 600 Swiss Francs towards her travel expenses to attend an international conference in 2018.
Dr. Dimple Chudasama is a postdoctoral researcher from The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK. Her research focuses on liquid biopsy approaches to cancer diagnostics and prognosis, particularly in cancers with poor survival rates such as lung and ovarian cancers. She will present her work at the 3rd EACR conference on the theme “Making it Personal: Cancer Precision Medicine”, which will be held on 5–7 November 2018 in Bergamo, Italy.
It was a very difficult decision with such high-quality applications for the awards, and we would like to thank all the applicants for their participation and all of the Award Committee members for their evaluation of the excellent applications. We congratulate Dr. Dimple Chudasama on her accomplishment.
