Dr Erica Watson awarded Lister Institute Research Prize

PDN researcher Dr Erica Watson has been awarded the Lister Institute Research Prize for her promising work in transgenerational epigenetic effects of folate metabolism.

The award was presented by the Lister Institute Director Kate Law and Professor Sir Alex Markman at the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience on the 21st of January 2016. The Lister Institute Research Prize Fellowships are one-off awards which seek to help support and nurture future leaders of biomedical research by providing £200,000 which may be used in any appropriate way to support the holder’s research over a period of up to five years. The awards are aimed at younger, rather than established, researchers who might be in their early years of running their own groups and for whom receipt of the Prize would ‘make a real difference’.
