Professor M.R. Jisnuson Svasti Young Protein Scientist of Thailand Award


Protein research in Thailand has developed greatly over the last 20 years, leading to the foundation of the Protein Society of Thailand (PST) in 2006. In 2017, Profeesor M.R. Jisnuson Svasti provided an endowment to PST to establish the Professor M.R. Jisnuson Svasti Outstanding Protein Scientist of Thailand Award (MRJS Outstanding PST Award) and the Professor M.R. Jisnuson Svasti Young Protein Scientist Award (MRJS Young PST Award) to recognize outstanding researchers in protein science and promote protein research. Last year, the first MRJS Outstanding PST Award was presented to Professor James Ketudat-Cairns. This year the PST is proud to announce “Professor M.R.
