Kristina Hetherington wins CBBG PGR Symposium poster prize

Congratulations to Kris on winning a poster prize at the RSC Chemical Biology and Bio-organic Group Postgraduate Symposium on 10 May 2018.

The Symposium, hosted at the University of Leeds, was an opportunity for early career scientists from a broad range of chemical biology backgrounds to come together, share their work and discuss the latest research.

Kris’s poster on experimental validation of hot residue predictions for β-strand mediated protein-protein interactions made an impression on the judges with its multidisciplinary emphasis.

Kris has been with PoPPI since the start of the project, after successfully completed her MChem in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Leeds with a one year Industrial Placement. Following her Masters Research Project Kristina secured a Leeds Alumni Anniversary Scholarship and chose to undertake her PhD with the Wilson Group.
