Women in Science Awards WISA 2013

V. Siyo, ICGEB PhD Student wins prestigious Tata scholarship for doctoral degree

Vuyolwethu Siyo, ICGEB PhD student in the Cancer Molecular and Cell Biology lab at ICGEB Cape Town, is among this year's winners of the 2013 WISA Awards as recipient of a Tata scholarship for a doctoral degree. Tata Africa awards study grants to women currently involved in full-time research study leading to a master's or doctoral degree in an area where the participation of women is traditionally low.

The WISA Awards, presented by the South African Department of Science and Technology, go to distinguished women and young women in the life sciences, in the social sciences and humanities, to researchers and emerging researchers in violence against women and to recipients of master's and doctoral degrees.

Ms. Siyo received her MSc at ICGEB Cape Town earlier this year and her current research investigates the molecular mechanisms employed by the anticancer compound bisPMB in cancer cells. She aims is to characterise the pathways activated by bisPMB in pursuit of improving the efficacy of known anticancer drugs that activate complementary pathways through combination treatment.
