Wellcome Trust Fellowship success

Congratulations to Dr Emily Osterweil for being awarded a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellowship (SRF) to study ribosome function in neuronal plasticity and autism.

These fellowships are awarded to “support independent researchers who are emerging as global leaders in their field and want to tackle the most important questions in science.” The 5 year fellowship will allow Dr Osterweil to develop her research defining the role of altered protein synthesis in neurodevelopmental disorders.
