As Editor-in-Chief of Genes, I am pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Genes Travel Awards.
The Evaluation Committee were very impressed with the high level of work presented and, after careful consideration, Travel Awards have been granted to:
Anna Esteve-Arenys, a Ph.D. student at the University of Barcelona, Spain, for her work on the development of novel combination therapies for double-hit lymphoma;
and to Dr. Marika Annika Kaakinen, a post-doctoral research associate at the Imperial College London, UK, working on the development of a novel method for the multi-phenotype analysis of rare genetic variants (MARV).
The awards consist of 800 Swiss Francs each, and are available for the winners to use for attendance and participation in any academic conference in 2017.
It is also my pleasure to announce that as part of the reward, Genes will offer the winners the opportunity to publish a paper with the publication fees waived.
I would like to thank all applicants for their participation and interest in our journal.
