RNA Lightning Talk Awards: first place for Anuja Kibe

Member of the Caliskan group has just been awarded

For her outstanding presentation on “ZAPping out the virus”, HIRI PhD student Anuja Kibe has just received an RNA Lightning Talk Award. She was awarded the first prize, which is funded with 150 US dollars.

The competition was part of an online workshop. Numerous trainees from across the globe attended the course on lightning talks. After the workshop, the participants had the opportunity to submit a five-minute video lightning talk to compete. An international jury then ranked the best videos. The workshop and competition were organized and sponsored by the RNA Society and the RNA Collaborative.

Anuja Kibe joined Neva Caliskan's lab at the HIRI in 2018. She is currently studying non-canonical translation events in immune cells in response to viral infection.
