Last week, Estela attended the UK Senescence Symposium which took place at the University of Edinburgh. It was a very intense day of talks and seminars by researchers in the field of senescence and DNA damage from both the UK and abroad. Estela had the opportunity to present her latest results as a poster presentation, and she was awarded with the best Poster Prize at the end of the symposium! As a prize, she was given a signed copy of 'Borrowed Time' by the very same author Sue Armstrong. Congratulations, Estela!
As a member of the newly founded young ICSA committee, Estela also gave a short talk on what the committee is doing and their plans to promote collaborations between young researchers in the field of senescence. Overall, an amazing and fruitful meeting!
