As Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Developmental Biology (JDB), it is my great pleasure to announce that the winner of the 2019 JDB Travel Award is Ms. Joana Esteves de Lima, who is a Post-doctoral in Prof. Frédéric Relaix’s laboratory in the Faculté de Médecine at Université Paris Est, France. On behalf of JDB, Ms. de Lima will be supported with 800 Swiss Francs towards travel expenses to attend the Society for Developmental Biology’s 78th Annual Meeting.
Ms. de Lima is working on analyzing the role of the Pax3 and Pax7 genes during myogenesis. She is developing an ambitious research project exploring the molecular interaction between these key transcription factors and chromatinmodifying enzymes to elicit transcriptional activation of downstream gene regulatory networks.
