I am thrilled to have won the 2010 Young Investigator Award from the British Society for Matrix Biology (BSMB).

The BSMB is a learned society for scientists with an interest in the extracellular matrix and related subjects. I have been a member of the BSMB since I joined the lab of Professor Martin Humphries as a PhD student (I also designed the BSMB logo in 2006!), and it is an honour to be chosen for this prestigious award.

I will receive the award at the BSMB Autumn Meeting in Norwich on Monday (6 September 2010), where I will also be presenting the Young Investigator Award lecture.
