As Editor-in-Chief of Pharmaceuticals, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2019 Pharmaceuticals Travel Award. The Evaluation Committee was very impressed with the high quality of the work presented, and after careful consideration, the Travel Award has been granted to Jorge Henrique Ferreira Grilo, a Ph.D. student at Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal.
Jorge Henrique Ferreira Grilo is now participating in the MedChemTrain doctoral programme, at FF.ULisboa. His research activity, under the supervision of Dr. Ana Ressurreição, focuses on the development of chemical tools and proteomics approaches to elucidate the mechanism of action and identify the target(s) and off-target(s) of novel antiparasitary agents. This work, directed mainly towards protozoan neglected tropical diseases, seeks to establish starting points for future drug discovery campaigns.
He is planning to present his work “Click Chemistry Tools to Unravel New Targets in Malaria” at GP2A, Nottingham, UK. The award consists of 400 Swiss Francs to attend this conference.
We would like to thank all applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics. We also thank our Evaluation Committee members for their comprehensive evaluation of the candidates. I congratulate the winner for his accomplishments.
Dr. Jean Jacques Vanden Eynde,
