Dr Amy Cross, who is a Postdoctoral Scientist, received a TTS Scientific Congress Award from The Transplantation Society for her research ‘Iron availability alters immune responses after allogenic skin transplantation’. 

While Dr Sarah Short, a DPhil student, won a Women in Transplantation Scientific Congress Award for her presentation entitled, ‘A spatially resolved analysis of immune responses within rejecting skin grafts from humanised mice, with and without low dose Treg treatment’.

Awardees were selected based upon the abstract's degree of excellence (top score), as determined by the ITS Scientific Program Committee and experts in the field.
