The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) has awarded funding to Heidi Neubauer to support her research on Myeloproliferative Neoplasms and thrombosis. This four year project will explore the role of the protein STAT5B in MPN disease mechanisms, where STAT5B could represent a novel prognostic marker and help explain patient phenotypes in these diseases. 

Congrats Heidi for this incredible achievement. We are looking forward to some productive years of research.
