Centenary Institute Honours student Arianna Di Fazio has been awarded the 2019 Gabriella Wittman Prize for Genetics.
This prestigious prize is awarded to a senior biology student by the Faculty of Science of the University of Sydney.
Arianna is applying and developing skills in molecular biology and protein biochemistry in an Honours year in a liver research program that targets liver cirrhosis.
Research has shown for the first time a link between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, an often fatal lung condition, and the gut microbiome.
Researchers have discovered the existence of an ancient genetic code conserved over 700 million years of evolution.
A ground-breaking discovery by Centenary Institute scientists shines new light on the nature of proteins and how they exist and operate in the human body.
