Anna Glaser, a PhD Student at the University of Liverpool is the November 2018 recipient of the Bio-Techne Go Everywhere Travel Grant
Anna has chosen to apply the grant to attend the 11th Congress on autoimmunity in Lisbon, Portugal on May 16 - 20, 2018.
The work to be presented for this conference is part of Anna's PhD project. Its goal was to investigate the differences of juvenile-onset systemic lupus erythematosus patients stratified dependent on an Interferon-induced gene signature. Resulting from this, she further studied the influence of different stimuli from the lupus micro-environment on the signature. Additionally, response with release of S100A8/S100A9, an important biomarker in systemic lupus erythematosus was further investigated.
Anna used Human S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer Quantikine ELISA Kit by R&D Systems for patient samples and different stimulations.
Bio-Techne and our brands are proud to support Anna’s work and the work of the many researchers that have applied to our travel grant program so far this year. If you are interested in applying for any of our travel grants, please go to www.rndsystems.com/travel.
