Marina Cihova – winner of the Short-Stay Scientific Award!

Thanks to support from the European pancreatic Club, PCE’s Research Workstream was able to organise, for the first time, the creation of a Short-Stay Scientific Award (S3A) for Early-Career Investigators (ECI). The S3A award provides a grant of 3000€ for a successful researcher to travel to a different country and stay for up to 3 months in a foreign research institution. The winner of this year is Marina Cihova, a Slovakian researcher at the Slovak Academy of Sciences, within the Cancer Research Institute. Marina will go spend a month in Madrid, Spain at the Ramon y Cajal Health Research Institute. There she will work to develop relevant pre-clinical study models of patient-derived pancreatic tumour organoids. This research project aims to improve the diagnostic capacities for pancreatic cancer. The award, which is designed to foster collaboration and cooperation between research teams all over Europe, was attributed to Marina Cihova during this year’s Annual General Meeting. We wish her all the best for her stay in Madrid which will take place in September!
