Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology Prize Winner
Lily Goodyer Sait - Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology Prize Winner
Lily’s presentation ‘Structural and Functional Studies of Cannabidiol Interactions with Voltage-gated Sodium Channel formed part of her recent first-author publication in ELife paper and was the winner of the best talk prize at the joint UCL Birkbeck Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology (ISMB) graduate symposium held on 1-2 July, 2021.
“Lily gave an outstanding talk, beautifully explaining a highly complex mechanism that she delineated through her structural work in a highly accessible manner” (Prof Finn Werner, Director of the ISMB).
Lily’s ISMB supervisor, Prof Bonnie Wallace of Birkbeck Biological Sciences, was also recently honoured with the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Khorana Prize in 2020.
Lily joined the Fundamental Mechanisms of Disease theme of the UCL-Birkbeck MRC-DTP in October 2017 after undertaking her Biological Sciences undergraduate degree from Hertford College, Oxford.
