Laura González awarded with the PhD Extraordinary award!

Laura González, a former member of the N&N Group, has been awarded the PhD Extraordinary Award by Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, for her doctoral thesis that was developed during the period 2016-2017. Laura’s thesis, “Evaluating inorganic nanoparticles in the living organism Caenorhabditis elegans”, was supervised by Anna Roig and Anna Laromaine.

The award, delivered by the School for Doctoral Studies together with the UAB Alumni Association of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, demonstrates the appreciation for the effort and dedication of young researchers and their contribution to the generation of knowledge and advance in the different areas of the UAB. The award consists of a competitive call among the researchers whose doctoral thesis received the qualification of excellence “Cum Laude” from the thesis committee. The main value of the UAB is its human capital and the new doctors are an essential element for the continuation of excellent lines of research. That excellence is based on the quality of the PhDs as a distinctive indicator.

After some years of having defended my PhD, I am very happy to receive such news, and to be able to share it with my supervisors, who worked as hard as me in my PhD project. In addition, the support of my family was essential during hard times, and their confidence in me also helped me to succeed in my PhD and to have received the award. To all of them, thank you very much!”, said Laura.
