Our lab mate María Crespo has been awarded the second prize in the Archimedes Competition. She will receive a prize of € 2,000.
The competition, organized by the Spanish Ministry of Education, favours the incorporation of young students into the research field by awarding them for their original Master projects of scientific or technological research. On this occasion, more than 350 students throughout Spain participated, of which only 25 went to the final.
Under the supervision of Guadalupe Sabio and Magdalena Leiva, Crespo has studied the circadian rhythm of neutrophil infiltration in the liver and the possible role that these cells play in the regulation of hepatic activity. Through the use of neutropenic mice, she has analyzed the contribution of neutrophils in the progress of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

EMBO announces today the selection of 28 young researchers as EMBO Young Investigators. Among them Guadalupe Sabio, who joins a network of 47 current and 417 past Young Investigators who represent some of the best up-and-coming group leaders in the life sciences in Europe and beyond.
“It is a pleasure to welcome these outstanding scientists to the EMBO community,” says EMBO Director Maria Leptin. “Between them, they carry out some of the most promising life science research that Europe has to offer, and we look forward to supporting them in their professional and scientific undertakings.”
Selection to the EMBO Young Investigator Programme is recognition of exceptional research and scientific potential. Through the programme, EMBO identifies and supports some of the best researchers under 40 years of age who are in the process of establishing their own laboratory.
During their three-year tenure, EMBO Young Investigators receive a range of benefits, including an award of 15,000 euros and possible additional funds to support the establishment of their first independent laboratories. The scientists also receive access to core facilities at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany, and funding for themselves and their group members to attend conferences.
