Travel Award 2019
As Editor-in-Chief of Pathogens, I am pleased to announce the two winners of the 2019 Travel Awards sponsored by Pathogens. These were granted to Dr. Krystyna Cwiklinski, a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Professor Dalton’s laboratory at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) and to Dr. Rebecca Sumner, a Senior Post-Doctoral Researcher in the laboratory of Professor Greg Towers in the Division of Infection and Immunity, University College London. The awards consist of 800 Swiss Francs each,to support attendance at an academic conference of their choice in 2019.
Dr. Krystyna Cwiklinski is interested in the pathogenesis of parasitic infections and she uses a range of parasitology, molecular biology and bioinformatics tools and techniques to further our understanding of host-parasite interactions.
Dr. Rebecca Sumner’s research focuses on understanding how HIV-1 is detected by the innate immune system, particularly by cytoplasmic DNA sensors, and how the virus has evolved to evade this detection.
We had a significant number of high quality applications for the awards and would like to thank all applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics. We congratulate the winners for their accomplishments and wish them an enjoyable experience at their conferences.
