Department of Biochemistry's Dr. Lidia Vasilieva has been awarded the 2016 Women in Cell Biology Early Career Medal by the British Society for Cell Biology for her work investigating the molecular mechanisms that underpin regulation of gene expression and their role in controlling cellular responses.
