Premio Prof. Giannelli
Studi su HCC:
Premio "Oustanding Award" al Prof. Gianluigi Giannelli
THE 3RD IJMS AWARDS WINNER
International Journal Of Molecular Sciences
We are pleased to announce the winners of The 3rd IJMS Awards:
Outstanding Contribution Awards,
Molecular Biology—Prof. Raymund J. Wellinger, a Full Professor at the
Department of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, Faculty of Medicine,
Université de Sherbrooke, Canada. His research focuses on how the ends of
eukaryotic chromosomes, the telomeres, are maintained. He investigates
questions on how telomeric chromatin achieves chromosome capping and
how telomeric DNA is replicated. Their work showed that the identified proteins
are shared between telomerase and other, telomerase-unrelated RNPs, which
in turn raises intriguing questions on the evolution of telomerase.
Molecular Pathology—Prof. Gianluigi Giannelli, the Scientific Director of
National Institute of Gastroenterology, “S de Bellis” Research Hospital, Italy.
He has studied the biological aspects of therapies to prevent the development
of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). He has proven experience
conducting clinical studies on the validation of biomarkers for diagnosis and
management of patients with HCC. He has vast experience in the molecular
mechanisms responsible for the progression of HCC and for the identification
of new therapeutic targets in preclinical models.
Prof. Wellinger and Prof. Giannelli will receive honorariums of 2000 CHF
respectively as they have made remarkable contributions to the advancement
of the fields of Molecular Biology and Molecular Pathology.
We would like to thank all the Scientific Committee members for their
assiduous evaluation of the candidates and all the applicants for submitting
their diverse and fascinating range of research topics.
The competition for The 4th IJMS Awards will be open at the end of 2018. Please
