2020 Toxins Travel Award: Winner Announced
We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2020 Travel Award sponsored by MDPI and Toxins. The award was granted to an outstanding young researcher:
2020 Toxins Travel Award
Dr. Steve Peigneur is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the lab of Toxicology & Pharmacology at the Catholic University of Leuven (KU Leuven) in Belgium. He has published over 125 articles in peer-reviewed journals. In 2019, he obtained his PhD in Biochemistry at the Federal University of Minas Gerias in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. His research in the field of drug discovery and development mainly focusses on the characterisation of novel ligands for ion channels and receptors, starting from natural sources such as venomous animals and poisonous plants. The aim is to investigate toxins for their therapeutic or insecticidal potential.
This has certainly been a difficult decision, given the volume of high-quality applications for the awards. We would like to thank all of the applicants for submitting what was collectively such a range of diverse and fascinating research topics and congratulate the winner on his accomplishments.
