PhD Viva Success
We are delighted to announce the success of one of Hanns’s UK students. Emily O’Connor, jointly supervised by Hanns and Professor Clarke Slater, successfully defended her thesis work this week and will be awarded a PhD from Newcastle University following submission of minor corrections. Emily was awarded her PhD for her thesis entitled “The role of MYO9A at the neuromuscular junction”. This research was possible due to the generosity of Kindness for Kids and AFM-Telethon. You can read some of her publications here. We look forward to welcoming Emily to Ottawa to take up a position in the Lochmüller lab.
