Congratulations to Sarah Könemann for receiving the SETAC GLB award for the best PhD Thesis!
The prize for her work "Mechanistic Understanding of Neurobehavioral Effects of Insecticides on the Larvae of Zebrafish (Danio rerio)" was awarded to her at this year's SETAC GLB conference in Muttenz. Sarah Könemann conducted the thesis at Utox in the Molecular Toxicology group and successfully completed it at the EPFL Faculty of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) in November 2022.
