Henry Dale wording with Wellcome and Royal Society logos.

Many congratulations to Drs Chris Toepfer and Ladislav Valkovic for being awarded the Sir Henry Dale Fellowship. This prestigious scheme provides support for postdoctoral researchers who aim to become independent scientists leading their own groups, and is a partnership between the Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust.

The title of Dr Toepfer's application was 'Understanding the role of myosin super relaxation in cardiac health and disease', and Dr Valkovic's application was entitled 'Novel multi-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy approaches for the sensitive and robust assessment of human cardiac energetics'. 

Both the researchers now also lead their own research groups, with Dr Valkovic being awarded the University Research Lecturer title last year as well. 

We want to hear about your news!
