The MSIF Young Researchers Award is given for the best presentation of a translational project by a young researcher at the annual congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research into Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS).
Dr Benedetta Bodini, a postdoctoral researcher from the Institute of Neurology in Queen Square, London, received the Young Researchers Award 2013 at ECTRIMS in Copenhagen.
Dr Bodini gave a presentation entitled ‘White and grey matter damage in early primary-progressive multiple sclerosis: the chicken or the egg?’
As Dr Bodini was not able to accept the award, former MSIF Du Pre grant recipient, Dr Olga Ciccarelli, presented it to Dr. Declan Chard, the second author on the paper.
2012 winner: Julien Ratelade
