Selma Meyer Dissertation Award
Dr. Sina Neyazi from AG Schüller has been awarded the Selma Meyer Dissertation Prize at the annual meeting of the German Society for Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. This prize is in memory of the Jewish pediatrician Selma Meyer, who in 1927 was the first woman to be appointed associate professor of pediatrics. With it, the DGKJ honors a "forward-looking pediatric doctoral thesis." Sina Neyazi studied in Hanover and earned her doctorate at the MHH and the University of Halle-Wittenberg. In her dissertation, she decribed the role of a new non-coding RNA in the development of acute myeloid leukemias (AML) in children. Since 2020, Sina Neyazi has been an assistant physician at the Clinic for Pediatric Hematology and Oncology (UKE) and has been participating in the Clinician Scientist Program of the Research Institute since January 2021.
