Success for Whitworth Lab

Congratulations to two members of the Whitworth laboratory who recently received the following awards:

Victoria Hewitt, a recent post-doc, has been awarded an EMBO long-term fellowship to work on the dynamics of mitochondria-ER contacts.

Post-graduate student, Emma Wilson, reached the finals of the University of Sheffield's Three Minute Thesis Competition with her talk 'Fat, Flies and Parkinsons’.

It was great to have a student represent BMS in this competition and it gave an opportunity to Emma to spread the word about her work to staff and students from other faculties. Hopefully more students will follow Emma’s example and take part in this competition in coming years!
