PhD student Xinyue Li was awarded a KNVM/NVMM Kiem Award for her paper “MUC1 is a receptor for the Salmonella SiiE adhesin that enables apical invasion into enterocytes”. Congratulations on this prestigious award, Xinyue!
The KNVM/NVMM science committee makes the Kiem Awards (EUR 500) available for the best first publications written by young microbiologists, whom are society members and are at the start of their microbiology career. Submissions are evaluated based on the quality of the candidate’s first publication, on condition that it has been published less than a year ago, in an internationally renowned academic journal and that the candidate is the first author. The prizes, which were first awarded in 2000, are named Kiem, which is Dutch for ‘germ’ (germination). Every year during the KNVM/NVMM Scientific Spring Meeting up to three prizes are awarded, one each in the categories “general microbiology”, “medical microbiology”, or “microbial ecology”. The jury consists of members of the KNVM/NVMM science committee.
