Eureka! We’re a winner!
A HUGE congratulations to Professor Mariapia Degli-Esposti, Dr Chris Andoniou, Peter Fleming from LEI and Professor Geoff Hill and Dr Paulo Martins on their spectacular win of the Eureka Prize for Scientific Research!
Cytomegalovirus infection is a frequent and life-threatening complication that significantly limits positive outcomes for bone marrow transplant patients. Professor Mariapia Degli-Esposti and her team have developed a novel, non-toxic and highly effective strategy to reduce the impact of this infection by preventing viral reactivation, leading to improved outcomes for transplant patients.
The Australian Museum Eureka Prizes recognise excellence in science and celebrate outstanding achievement. We are so proud of Professor Degli-Esposti and the team! See more in the video below:
