The American Association of Anatomists (AAA) has awarded Bungo Akiyoshi, a group leader in the Department of Biochemistry, the R.R. Bensley Award in Cell Biology.

The award is one of the Association's Young Investigator Awards which recognise researchers in the early stages of their careers who have made important contributions to specific areas of biomedical science. Bungo, a Royal Society/Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale Fellow, was chosen for his work in the area of cell biology.

He will receive the award at the Experimental Biology 2015 conference in Boston at the end of March and will give a lecture about his work which has uncovered an unusual set of proteins needed to build a kinetochore in trypanosomes and related species.
