Dr Katie Doores receives esteemed Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists

Today, the Blavatnik Family Foundation and the New York Academy of Sciences announced the recipients of the 2023 Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in the United Kingdom. Now in its sixth year, the Awards are the largest unrestricted prize available to UK scientists aged 42 or younger. As a Virologist and Immunologist, Dr Katie Doores studies how the immune system responds to infection to inform the development of vaccines against biomedically important viruses. Through this research she aims to aid our preparedness for potential future pandemics. Specialising in virology, immunology, and glycobiology (the study of the structure, biosynthesis, and biology of carbohydrates), Katie was recognised for paradigm-shifting discoveries in the characterisation of antibody responses to viral infections, including the persistent and acute human infections HIV-1, hantaviruses, phleboviruses, and SARS-CoV-2.
