Dr Emmanuel Boucrot Awarded a Prestigious Lister Institute Research Prize

16 July 2014

Dr Emmanuel Boucrot, BBSRC David Phillips Fellow from SMB, has been awarded a prestigious Lister Institute Research Prize.

These annual awards are made by The Lister Institute to support young scientists undertaking high quality research in biomedical science or related scientific areas in the UK. Prize holders also become members of the Lister Community of Fellows.

The Prize award, which includes £200,000 over five years, will enable Emmanuel to study a new pathway of endocytosis he and his co-workers recently discovered. The main focus of the investigations will be to identify receptors that use this pathway to enter into cells and to reveal the components that generate the endocytic carriers. This will allow his laboratory to dissect how cells modulate the levels of medically important receptors at their surface.
