AARI scientist wins fellowship

A Western Australian scientist from the Asthma and Allergy Research Institute (AARI) has been awarded the Marie Curie Fellowship which will enable her to work for Galapagos, a biotech company in the Dutch city of Leiden. Amelia Scaffidi recently submitted her PhD thesis which investigated the mechanisms which contribute to remodelling of the lung which is a characteristic feature of both asthma and lung fibrosis. The post doctoral work she will undertake in the Netherlands will look specifically at developing drug treatments for cystic fibrosis. Marie Curie Fellowships are offered by the European Commission and are aimed at improving training and mobility for young scientists across national borders and to also encourage the transfer of knowledge between academia and industry and vice-versa.
