Student Update: PhD Candidate Hugo Villanueva

PhD candidate Hugo Villanueva recently submitted his PhD thesis from BBSRC LIDo sponsored research in the lab of Dr Renos Savva. Hugo’s viva is scheduled for 5th December.

Hugo is the recipient of one of three competitive stipend awards – covering a three-month period – under the new LIDo initiative Innovation Placement Fund. Hugo is exploring how to translate research, and has connected with new, early-stage funder Revenant Bio, in order to learn the ropes and perhaps start his own venture in the life sciences area.
