The 2023 Reinhart-Heinrich Doctoral Thesis Award

The Reinhart Heinrich prize committee has decided to award Dr Kishori Hari for the Reinhart Heinrich thesis prize of 2023 for his thesis “Design Principles of Phenotypic Robustness and Plasticity in Gene Regulatory Networks underlying Cancer Metastasis” defended in the Indian Institute of Sciences.


Motivation: Kishori Hari receives the prize for his significant contributions to the understanding of gene regulatory networks and their role in phenotypic plasticity and robustness,  especially for epithelial–mesenchymal transitions, using perturbations of network topologies and Boolean and ODE based network simulations.


The prize committee: Tom Britton (chair), Helen Byrne, Mirjam Kretzschmar, Josep Sardanyes and Jana Wolf
