2015 BioFactors Young Investigator Award
On behalf of the IUBMB, BioFactors and Wiley, it is with great pleasure and honor that we announce Shilpa Thakur as the recipient of the 2015 BioFactors - Wiley Young Investigator Award for her article, Regulation at multiple levels controls the expression of folate transporters in liver cells in conditions of ethanol exposure and folate deficiency.
Shilpa Thakur is a Ph.D student in the Department of Biochemistry, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, in Chandigarh, India. She completed her Bachelor’s and Masters' degree in Biotechnology and thereafter joined the Ph.D program under the guidance of Dr. Jyotdeep Kaur, Additional Professor in the Department of Biochemistry. As a part of her thesis work, Dr. Thakur has examined various regulatory mechanisms underlying the effects of folate deficiency and ethanol exposure on folate transport, and has gained expertise in the field of molecular biology and epigenetics during her Ph.D tenure. Presently, Dr. Thakur’s laboratory is focusing on folate deficiency and epigenetic regulation of some imprinting genes.
Shilpa Thakur will be honored with the 2015 BioFactors - Wiley Young Investigator Award at the 23rd International Union for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) Congress and 44th Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil from August 24th to 28th, 2015, and her award-winning article will be FREELY available online through the conference.
Please join us in congratulating Shipla Thakur as the recipient of the annual BioFactors– Wiley Young Investigator Award!
