Congratulations to Larisa Labzin, winner of the 2022 Queensland Young Tall Poppy Science Awards, an award recognising researchers who demonstrate scientific excellence and who communicate their science to the wider public.
Larisa's research at IMB is about understanding how the immune system detects an infection and what specific alarm signals it sends out to start preparing a targeted response.
