My Hedhammar awarded by The Swedish Fund for Research Without Animal Experiments!

My Hedhammar was awarded ”Nytänkaren 2018” title from The Swedish Fund for Research Without Animal Experiments. Her research explores a potential use of spider silk protein in formation of cell and tissue models that could become an alternative to experiments conducted on animals.
