The 2016 Hatherton Award has been awarded to Dr Jason Busby from the School of Biological Sciences.

The Hatherton Award is awarded for the best scientific paper by a student registered for the degree of PhD at any New Zealand University, published or accepted for publication either during their studies or within two years of the completion of the PhD in Physical Sciences, Earth Sciences or Mathematical and Information Sciences.

Jason’s paper entitled "The BC component of ABC toxins is an RHS-repeat-containing protein encapsulation device", was published in 2013 in the leading science journal Nature, brought spectacular new insights into a novel family of proteins that encapsulate toxins or other protein cargo.

“It’s great to be selected for this award, it’s really gratifying to have your work recognised in this way,” says Jason.
