Mattie is really honoured to be named as the inaugural recipient of the British Society of Parasitology President’s Medal.
Thanks to Prof David Horn for the nomination, and to previous and current mentors for their support of Mattie and the new Pawlowic lab.
Mattie gave the President’s Medal Lecture at this year’s Annual Meeting held at the Manchester University on April 16th. This year’s Meeting is run in partnership with the Belgian Society of Parasitology and Protistology (BSPP) and the Dutch Society for Parasitology (NVP).
From the BSP website:
“The President’s Medal recognises the impact of research carried out by a member of the Society who will have no more than six years of postdoctoral research experience following the award of their PhD (note allowances will be made for career breaks or part-time working). This award will recognise members who will have produced international quality research outputs and/or have delivered tangible impacts to the field, and be able to demonstrate ambitions consistent with the potential to achieve a world-leading status within our research community.”
