The Bruno Bash and the Margaret Ciotti Medal

18 May 2018

The Margaret Ciotti medal is awarded annually to the best Senior Sophister experimentalist and is given by Bruno Orsi, a retired lecturer, in honour of his late wife, Margaret, a biochemist who worked on NAD+ and NADP+-dependent enzymes.

This year's prize was awarded to Ross Ward for his project titled 'The Gut-lung axis: Investigating the impact of gut microbiata and its metabolites on phagocyte phenotype and function during pneumococcal pneumonia'.

His supervisor was Prof Ed Lavelle.
