Vice Chancellor's Fellow awarded Best Publication

Dr Phil ElksWe are delighted to announce that Dr Phil Elks, Vice Chancellor's Fellow in the Department of Infection and Immunity, has been awarded the Best Publication of 2013 Prize by the Cell Observatory in Leiden, for his paper entitled "Hypoxia inducible factor signaling modulates susceptibility to mycobacterial infection via a nitric oxide dependent mechanism."

Leiden is the oldest University in the Netherlands, established during the scientific renaissance in the 1500s, and to be honoured in the department is a huge achievement. Holland is the birthplace of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, commonly known as the "Father of Microbiology", and Phil will be presented with his prize (a replica of a van Leeuwenhoek microscope) on 25 February.
