Of the 164 poster presented by new investigators, one by Matthew Rätsep, a PhD candidate in the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences, Queen’s University, titled “The Role of Placental Growth Factor in Regulating Fetal Brain Vascular Development”, was selected as the best presentation based on scientific merit, interpretation, impact of the results and clarity of the presentation. As a result, Mr. Rätsep was presented with the Elsevier Trophoblast Research New Investigator Award, which includes an invitation to present a plenary lecture at next year’s IFPA meeting in Brisbane, Australia. Mr. Rätsep’s PhD program is co-supervised by Drs. Anne Croy and Michael Adams. Congratulations Matt!
