GLIOTRAIN PhD candidate Yahaya Yabo wins prestigious travel grant

We congratulate GLIOTRAIN ESR Yahaya Yabo for being awarded the Pelican grant from the Fondation du Pélican. The grant will support Yahaya to attend and participate in a series of relevant training courses and meetings. Earlier in 2019 Yahaya visited the Computational Cancer Biology laboratory at the Jackson Laboratories (JAX) in Farmington, USA, where he worked under the guidance of Prof Roel Verhaak . Moreover, the grant funded his attendance at the virtual European Association of Neuro-Oncology (EANO) meeting in Rotterdam (Netherlands) in September 2021 and will also give him the opportunity to present and discuss his work with top experts at the virtual Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) annual meeting in Texas (USA) in November 2020.
