Antonia wins best poster prize

Antonia wins best poster prize

Tue 12 October

Antonia, a PhD student who works on a YBTC-funded research project in Hull, has won a prestigious prize for her research.
Antonia Barry is a PhD student at the University of Hull, originally from South Shields. Her studies, funded by YBTC, involve researching novel treatments against brain tumours. She works under the supervision of Dr Pedro Beltran-Alvarez and Dr Mark Wade at the University of Hull and Dr Lucy Stead at the University of Leeds.

In September, Antonia was invited to present a poster at the prestigious Allam Lecture, hosted by the Hull York Medical School. The poster explored the team's research into treatments which may inhibit protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs), molecules which are believed to impede the effectiveness of chemo and radiotherapy.

She presented in front of an audience over 250 researchers and clinicians, both in-person and watching via stream.

Antonia was awarded the prize for the best poster presentation, an incredible achivement beating stiff competition and giving her research great visibility.

Antonia said: "It was an honour to present my work at the conference and a pleasure to see how interested the wider medical and scientific communities are in this vital research, which could not have been possible without the support of the YBTC!"

Well done Antonia on this well-deserved accolade! To read more about the research Antonia is working on, click here.
