Novo Scholarship awarded to Milena Laban
Master student Milena Laban has been awarded a Novo Scholarship from the Novo Nordisk Foundation and Novozymes. These scholarships are offered to support graduate training of some of the best students in protein science, biotechnology, bioinformatics, molecular biology, systems biology, translational medicine, microbiology, biophysics, pharmacology, drug delivery and biomedical devices. The purpose is to allow selected students at universities in Denmark and Lund University to devote full time to their MSc thesis.
Milena Laban is using electron microscopy in her Master’s thesis to study the structure of a lipid flippase. This can identify details of how flippases work. Her project is part of a collaboration with other projects that aim to understand the reaction cycle of lipid flippases.
