We are delighted and proud to announce the winners of the first “best poster award” from the D-Amino Acid International Research Center DAAIR at the IDAR2019 meeting in Tokyo (september 10-13, 2019). The two prizes (500 € each) are intended to identify and support young researchers in their career at early stage.
An international board constituted by Norito Fujii, Hiroshi Homma, Jean-Pierre Mothet, Jonathan Sweedler and Herman Wolosker selected two posters, presented by young researchers, based on the relevance of their work to the D-amino acids field:

Samah NEAME (Dept. of Biochemistry, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology; Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Haifa, Israel): “An astrocytic PHGDH-dependent serine shuttle controls NMDAR activation and the synthesis of the co-agonists D-serine and glycine” – Poster 06

Yohei KAYANO (Graduate School of Engineering Science, Yokohama National University, Japan): “Separation of tripeptide Phe-Phe-Phe diastereomers by crown ether-type chiral columns and structural difference among the diastereomers on self-assembly” – Poster 36

Compliments to dr. Neame and Kayano for their achievements and a special acknowledge to the organizers of the IDAR2019 meeting for the fruitful scientific environment.

Loredano Pollegioni (DAAIR director)
