Congratulations to Elisabete Cruz da Silva, winner of the 'Mature your PhD' prize, organized by the SATT Conectus. After two rounds of selection, Elisabete and three other winners (Benoît Ribon, Farah Bouhedda and Salima El Yakhlifi) were rewarded on the 4th of June 2019 during the 'Generation Startups' event. The idea of 'Mature your PhD' was to capitalize on thesis projects developed by PhD students. Elisabete (co-director: M. Lehmann & L. Choulier) presented a project to vectorize nucleic acid aptamers inside tumor cells
