Sparrho is offering grants of £500 for PhD students and postdocs to attend an academic conference of their choice. We are proud to announce our August winner for the Sparrho Early Career Researcher Prize - congratulations to Conor McLoughlin!
Conor will cross several time zones using his £500 Sparrho travel money to get to the MNDA: 30th International Symposium on ALS/MND between 4th - 6th December 2019 in Perth, Australia.
Well done, Conor!
Conor is a PhD student at King's College London, United Kingdom, studying human genetics and how they affect our chances of developing a disorder, impressing the Sparrho jury with his pinboard submission:
He's an outgoing, lively person who loves to explore, travel and learn new things so it's really not surprising that Conor is also passionate about exploring prevention targets for motor neurone disease (MND).
Conor has also collaborated with our editorial team on our latest 3-min Digest: "Using stress to fight ALS and dementia".
