LAM Action congratulates Dr Suzanne Miller, a Senior Research Fellow working in Professor Simon Johnson’s lab, on being named the British Thoracic Society’s Early Career Investigator of the Year for her work in LAM. Dr Miller was one of six finalists from a field of 63. This prestigious prize is highly competitive and awarded by the British Thoracic Society (BTS) to the “very best basic, translational or clinical research performed in the UK respiratory community by early career investigators.” The BTS awards the prize based on the “quality and content of the research performed, the quality of the abstract submitted and in short-listed candidates, the quality of the oral presentation given at the Early Career Investigators Symposium at the BTS Winter Meeting.”
We are also pleased to report that Dr Miller, along with Dr Debbie Clements and Dr Roya Babaei-Jadidi, who also work in Professor Johnson’s lab, presented their work in LAM over the course of three talks at the November 2022 BTS Winter Meeting in London. The U.S. LAM Foundation funded the work presented by Dr. Miller, and LAM Action and the Medical Research Council funded the work presented by Drs Clements and Babaei-Jadidi. We are thrilled that their important research into LAM was highlighted at such a prestigious event.
