The editors of Hypertension established an award to recognise the top original papers published in the Journal in the categories of basic, clinical, and population sciences.
DPhil student Emma Bardsley and her supervisor Head of Department Professor David Paterson have received an award for the paper Neurotransmitter Switching Coupled to β-Adrenergic Signaling in Sympathetic Neurons in Prehypertensive States, which has been selected as the top paper for 2018 in the category of basic science. DPhil student Harvey Davis and Associate Professor Keith Buckler are also co-authors on the paper.
The award comes with a cash prize, two inscribed plaques and a travel award to attend the Council on Hypertension Scientific Sessions 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana from September 5 - 8 2019.
Emma Bardsley recently graduated from our Department and her degree, a DPhil Ion Channels and Disease, was conferred upon her on Saturday 13 July 2019 in the Sheldonian Theatre. The winning paper formed a chapter in her final thesis.
