Members of our lab received yesterday two awards from the Social Council of the University Pompeu Fabra.
Khademul Islam obtained the award recognizing the high potential of knowledge transfer of a PhD project. The title of Khademul’s Thesis is “Delineating epigenetic regulatory mechanisms of cell proliferation and differentiation” and it was directed by Elizaveta Benevolenskaya from the University of Illinois at Chicago and myself (see abstract).
Various members of the lab obtained an award for a research project with an important component of knowledge transfer. In particular the award was granted for the project titled “Computer system for handling, managing and exploiting genomics data for personalized medicine”, which was funded by Innocash program during 2010 and 2011 (see more information).
