GO Student Fulbright Success!

Genetics Otago would like to congratulate Anežka Hoskin who has recently been named a Fulbright NZ Science and Innovation Graduate.

Anežka has been a member of Genetics Otago while completing her MSc in Genetics working with Prof Tony Merriman in the Department of Biochemistry along with Dr Phil Wilcox and Ngāti Porou. Her research centred around genetic contributions to gout and type 2 diabetes specifically in the Māori and Polynesian communities. She is passionate about removing the whakamā (shame) and increasing knowledge surrounding these metabolic diseases.

Anežka will now complete a PhD in Genetics at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
