first prize of a laptop computer and a weekend holiday in a Basque tourism farmhouse The Elhuyar Foundation, through its Basque Research website, organised the VI PhD Thesis Prize and this morning the judges’ panel made its decisions known. This year the winner was Ms Estibaliz Alegre, a researcher at the University of Navarra, for her work entitled, La molรฉcula HLA-G como marcador de aborto espontรกneo (The HLA-G molecule as a marker in spontaneous abortions).

Ms Alegre is a biochemist and has done research into a marker which can help to identify women at risk of suffering miscarriages. The extract that she presented, apart from being written in an understandable and easy to read manner and was focused from the outset on the core of the matter under research.


This was one of the reasons the Jury decided to award her the first prize of a laptop computer and a weekend holiday in a Basque tourism farmhouse, courtesy of Sistek Computers & Microsystems and Nekatur, respectively.
