Kate Slade was awarded the Syncona PhD scholarship!

Kate Slade was awarded the competitive Syncona PhD scholarship. Following her MSc in Molecular Biology and Pathology of Viruses where she did her 6-month MSc project in the Maertens Lab, she continues her research into understanding how HTLV-1 uses PP2A-B56 and its binding partners to establish infection.

The Syncona PhD scholarship is unique in that it supports specifically bright students from a BAME background and offers a mentor for the duration of the PhD as well as a paid internship in the fourth year of the PhD. Well done Kate!
