Kellogg Student Awarded EPSRC Doctoral Prize22 May 2018
Congratulations to former MCR President Florian Klimm, on receiving an EPSRC Doctoral Prize for the research included in his thesis, Generalised Networks for Protein Interaction Analysis.
The EPSRC Doctoral Prize offers up to two years follow-on funding to EPSRC-funded research students after they have submitted their DPhil.
Working on the intersection between mathematics and biology, Florian treats human cells as complex systems to understand their dynamic behaviour. Such approaches may help to target the drug discovery process and thus make it more effective, while reducing the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
This prize allows Florian to continue his research at the University of Oxford, as a postdoctoral researcher, under the supervision of former Kellogg Fellow, Charlotte Deane. He intends to extend his current research to more realistic representations of biological processes called hypergraphs.
Florian commented, “Receiving this award is a great honour and I am looking forward to continue my research at Oxford and joining Kellogg as an Alumnus for many events”.
