Our £500 Researcher Prize winner of September 🏆

Sparrho awards £500 to PhD students and postdocs to attend an academic conference of their choice. Today we introduce our September winner for the Sparrho Early Career Researcher Prize - congratulations to Lap Hing Chi (Leo)!

Lap Hing Chi Leo will present at the 9th Barossa Meeting 2019 - Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine from 12th - 15th November 2019 in Barossa Valley, Adelaide, Australia. 🇦🇺

Leo is a PhD student at Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, Australia, studying human genetics and how they affect our chances of developing a disorder. He convinced the Sparrho jury with his pinboard submission:

Activating BMP4 signalling to stop the spread of breast cancer”.

Leo applied for Sparrho's Researcher Prize before and he was shortlisted as one of the Top 5 candidates in August - hats off to your determination, Leo! 🎩👏

He has also collaborated with our editorial team on our latest 3-min Digest: "The switch that can hold breast cancer at bay".
