Investigator honoured by NZSBMB

28 August 2013

Congratulations to our investigator Associate Professor Debbie Hay, from the University of Auckland, on winning the 2013 New Zealand Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NZSBMB) prize.

Debbie, a senior lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences, is a molecular pharmacologist whose main area of research is peptide G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), a major class of cell surface proteins targeted by many drugs.

The NZSBMB award is made on the basis of work published in the three preceding years. It consists of a $1,000 cash prize, registration and travel costs for attending the annual NZSBMB conference (QMB in 2013), and a $2,000 travel grant to attend a conference of the winner's choosing.
