Antonio’s project was funded by a CIT Risam PhD fellowship and was entitled Crystallographic studies on host-interacting proteins of phage K virion, and much of the work was conducted off-site at CNB (Centro Nacional de Biotecnología) in Madrid under the guidance of Dr Mark van Raaij as part of a collaboration with CIT. Antonio, from Galicia, Spain, hopes to take up a position in the Spanish Health Ministry in the coming months.
