Sofie H. Lautrup and Oskar Franch were awarded the Kjeld Marcker PhD Award 2019 at the annual meeting of the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics on Friday 28 June 2019.
The chairman of the PhD programme committe Ernst-Martin Füchtbauer presented the awards to the two prize winners with the following reasons for the selection of these two former PhD students:
Sofie Lautrup has a number of publications in journals with high impact factors and presented her work at several international meetings with oral presentations. She was also actively communicated science to the general public, by writing a popular science article, and by frequently teaching elementary and high school students. During her PhD she received several national and international travel grants, including the prestigious Dronning Margrethe II rejselegat. A very important aspect of her additional activities was her engagement in the MBG PhD Association, where she served in the board and actively participated in the planning and coordination of the first three PhD conferences.
