I won the first prize for my publication ‘Signaling signature of neurotensin receptor type 1 with endogenous ligands‘ published earlier this year in European Journal of Pharmacology. This publication prize is awarded by the Sherbrooke Neuroscience Centre.
My abstract, “Phosphomimetic lipopeptides as new tools to investigate β-arrestin-mediated functions.” has been selected for a 15-min. short talk at the 2017 edition of the Great Lakes GPCR Retreat which will be held in Ottawa on Oct. 19-21, 2017.
I received Dean’s honour list for my outstanding work all along 2016. This award is reserved for the top 10% of graduate students at the Faculty of medicine.
