Congratulations to Mylene Huebecker of the Fran Platt lab and James Bae of the Ming Lei lab who shared last week’s Paton Prize of £250. Mylene’s presentation was entitled ‘Glycosphingolipids relevant to Parkinson’s disease change in normal ageing of the human and mouse brain’ while James spoke about the ‘Development of small molecule PAK1 activators for the treatment of cardiac hypertrophy and ventricular arrhythmias'.

The Paton Prize in the Department of Pharmacology at Oxford is given annually to the leading presentation from year two DPhil students. All second year students are expected to give a presentation of their work to members of the Department.

This year's prize was judged by Professor Chas Bountra from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, Professor Nicola Sibson of the Department of Oncology and Dr Sri Vasudevan from the Department of Pharmacology
