Cristian Soitu, Dunn School-based Engineering Science Student, wins prestigious HFSP Fellowship

Dr. Cristian Soitu, a former student in Professor Peter Cook’s lab at the Dunn School of Pathology, has won a prestigious Human Frontier Sciences Program cross-disciplinary Fellowship, in March 2021.

HFSP cross disciplinary fellowships are awarded to researchers with a degree outside the life sciences and support innovative ground-breaking projects.

With the award of three years financial support Cristian will conduct research in Anthony Zador's group at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York, where he will be investigating the mechanisms which mediate information flow in the brain at single cell resolution.

Whilst Cristian earned his DPhil in Engineering Science under the supervision of Professors Edmond Walsh and Alfonso Castrejon-Pita, he carried out the majority of his work in the Dunn School in close collaboration with Professor Peter Cook. His work focused on the use of microfluidic chambers for cell biology.
