EMBO Workshop on Wnt Signalling - Broome, Western Australia - October 6-9, 2014


This is a special award to promote women in science. It honours two inspirational founding scientists in the Wnt field, Mariann Bienz and Marian Waterman.

The committee could not separate two finalists, thus two "best female presenters" have been awarded.
