Travel award winner Olga Skiteva
Olga Skiteva is a postdoc working in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, in the Karolinska Institute, in the lab of Karima Chergui. She is researching the mechanisms underlying the fast antidepressant effects of ketamine in mice - specifically those that involve changes in glutamatergic transmission via AMPA receptors in different brain regions. The award will help to fund her trip to the Society for Neuroscience conference in Washington DC.
I'm so glad to get the award! The Annual Meeting of Society for Neuroscience is the biggest neuroscience conference in the world... It's an opportunity to meet the top neuroscientists, get inspired by their lectures, present our own study, discuss it and get feedback! Also I want to mention that the application procedure was clear and easy. Thank you very much, Hello Bio, for the support!. Olga Skiteva, Karolinska Institute, Sweden, Hello Bio travel award winner
