Jana Riederer (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen) wins the AllGenetics-EMPSEB Award 2022

Her talk about the role of sexual selection in shaping adaptive radiations has been selected as the best oral presentation at the EMPSEB27 held in Espoo (Finland) this week.

AllGenetics is happy to announce that Jana Riederer, PhD student at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (The Netherlands), has won the AllGenetics-EMPSEB Award 2022. Her research work about how sexual selection may impact two key properties of adaptive radiations (the ability to undergo adaptive evolution and the ability to diversify) in Anolis lizards has been selected as the best oral presentation at this year’s EMPSEB meeting.

Since 2012, the European Meeting of PhD Students in Evolutionary Biology (EMPSEB) has been sponsored by AllGenetics by offering the AllGenetics-EMPSEB Award to the PhD student giving the best talk. The award consists of a one-week vacation in Ortigueira, a beautiful village in Galicia’s countryside (NW Spain), where the awardee and up to five friends are invited to enjoy local nature, atmosphere, and gastronomy at The Farm Cottage, in the unique environment that Ortegal county has to offer.
