Toxins 2019 Travel Award
As Editor-in-Chief of Toxins, I am pleased to announce the winners of the Toxins Travel Award for 2019:
Travel Awards was granted to Dr. Elisabeth Varga, a postdoctoral fellow in Professor Doris Marko’s lab at University of Vienna, Austria, and to Dr. Miklós Poór, a postdoctoral fellow in Professor Tamás Kőszegi’s lab at University of Pécs, Hungary.
Dr. Elisabeth Varga studies the production of fish killing prymnesin toxins produced by the haptophyte Prymnesium parvum, as well as karmitoxin produced by the dinoflagellate Karlodinium armiger. Her tasks include the preparative purification and identification of prymnesins by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometric methods and she reveals the chemical diversity of these molecules.
Dr. Miklós Poór has a deep interest in toxicology and pharmacokinetics. His main research fields are mycotoxins, albumin-ligand interactions, and pharmacokinetic aspects of food-drug interactions.
