EIT Health Doctoral Transition Fellowship 2017

Congratulations to Aini Vuorinen who has been awarded a BRONZE prize of €10,000 through the EIT Health Doctoral Transition Fellowship 2017. Aini, a Muscular Dystrophy UK-funded DPhil student in the AJR group, presented her pitch to the panel describing her innovative research. The award has been established to address the innovation funding gap between the submission of the doctoral thesis and pre-thesis defence, and Aini will work on a project with Summit Therapeutics to elucidate the molecular mechanism of action of small molecule modulators of utrophin for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. more........
