PhD Student wins FASEB award!
It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Professor Marco Falasca’s PhD student, Pratibha Malhotra, who won a Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) award for her oral presentation at the recent FASEB Science Research Conference. FASEB is an organisation that provides a forum in which to hold educational meetings, develop publications, and disseminate biological research results and encompasses over 130,000 researchers world-wide. Pratibha submitted an abstract for the “Lysophospholipid and Related Mediators Conference: From Bench to Clinic” and was invited as a speaker to present on “Exosomal lysophospholipids play key role in cancer progression”. The FASEB awards are highly competitive, and this is an outstanding achievement.
When asked about what this award means to her, Pratibha said “I am happy and grateful to receive this award at an international conference. This conference was a wonderful opportunity and I enjoyed working on it. I sincerely thank and appreciate my supervisor, Professor Falasca for his valuable help, support and efforts in the lead up to this presentation and conference”.
Congratulations Pratibha on this exceptional award and recognition.
