Congratulations 2021 Christine Beattie Award Winner!
Congratulations to the 2021 Christine Beattie Award winner, Jessica Stock! The award recognizes junior investigators who demonstrate excellence in the field of zebrafish research and exhibit promise as a future leader in the zebrafish field. Jessica was awarded based on her IZFC presentation “A self-generated Toddler gradient directs mesodermal cell migration during zebrafish gastrulation”.

About Jessica Stock:
My name is Jessica Stock and I am currently a PhD student in the lab of Andrea Pauli. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from the Free University of Berlin before moving to the UK to pursue a Master of Research in Molecular Cell Biology at the University of Nottingham. In 2016, I started my PhD in the Pauli lab at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna, Austria, where I was first introduced to zebrafish as a model system. Being fascinated by embryonic development and the beauty of morphogenesis--especially in a zebrafish embryo--I focused my PhD project on exploring the process of gastrulation. In particular, I set out to understand the molecular regulation of the anterior migration of the ventrolateral mesoderm. It has been an absolute pleasure to be part of the zebrafish community ever since.
