September 24, 2019 EUROoCS
During the closing ceremony of the first EUROoCS conference 2019 in Graz (Austria) a number of young scientists received an award. Travel Awards were offered to promote participation of students and selected from the submitted abstracts by peer-review. The Best Poster Awards were elected by voting of all participants in the conference. The Best Talk Award was chosen by the scientific committee and the session chairs.
Congratulations to the following awardees:
Best Talk Award
The Best Talk Award (€ 500) is sponsored by Biosensors, an Open Access Journal by MDPI. Conference Chair Torsten Mayr presented the award to Thomas E. Winkler (KTH Sweden) for his talk ‘Continuous barrier integrity monitoring in a micro-physiological human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) model of the blood-brain-barrier (BBB)’.
