Sarah Cushman receives DGK Best Poster Prize

Sarah Cushman, a PhD student at the Institute of Molecular and Translational Therapeutic Strategies (IMTTS) at Hannover Medical School, was awarded the prestigious poster prize from the German Cardiac Society (DGK) at the society’s annual conference in Mannheim for her poster entitled “Insights into the role of circular RNA, circREGEN, in cardiomyocyte proliferation and cardiac regeneration”, which was selected out of hundreds of posters. This poster delves into the role by which circREGEN influences the regenerative potential of the heart, as well as the protective effect it offers against stress inducing factors.

Sarah is working in the SFB B01 project under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Thum and PD Dr. Christian Bär.
