As Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Cardiovascular Development and Disease (JCDD), I am pleased to announce that the winner of the 2018 JCDD Travel Award (First period), is Dr. Monika Gladka-de Vries, a Postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Eva van Rooij’s laboratory at Hubrecht Institute KNAW, Utrecht, the Netherlands, who will receive 500 Swiss Francs towards her travel expenses to attend the Heart Failure Winter Meeting 2018 to be held in Les Diablerets, Switzerland.
The major conclusion of Dr. Gladka’s research presented in her abstract for this meeting is that she used single-cell sequencing on both the healthy and diseased adult heart to study transcriptomic differences between cardiac cells, as well as cell type-specific changes in gene expression during cardiac disease.
We would like to thank all the applicants for participating and it was difficult to pick one winner given the diverse and high-quality selection of work submitted. For candidates who lost or missed the first period of the award, you are also welcome to apply for the second period Travel Award in 2018.
Prof. Dr. Andy Wessels
