This year’s coveted Reviewers’ Choice Award for Life Sciences Company of the Year goes to Logos Biosystems, in acknowledgment of the consistently positive feedback it has received from scientists sharing their opinions via reviews on the SelectScience® website over the past year.
This year’s winning video ‘Early-stage diagnostics: How high-throughput sequencing helps Cambridge researcher accurately detect helminth infections’ is an interview with Marina Papaiakovou, Ph.D. candidate at the University of Cambridge.
In this video, Papaiakovou discusses her research focused on developing and optimizing qPCR-based diagnostics for helminth infections and reveals how high-throughput sequencing methods and technology from MP Biomedicals are helping her effectively characterize and understand helminth infections and their interactions with the gut microbiota.
"I am fantastically honored to have received this recognition. I am grateful for all my supportive supervisors for boosting me towards realizing results from ideas as I pursue my Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge. They have encouraged me to communicate to wider audiences about my research in understanding worm diversity to improve our diagnostics. Thank you to The Scientists’ Channel for allowing me to highlight the impact parasites have globally and for providing a window to my wormy world!"
