Baker Department PhD Scholarship Recipients
Congratulations to the recipients of the first round of Baker Department of Cardiometabolic Health top-up PhD Scholarships!
Congratulations to Haikun Liu, Shania Anggita Prijaya and Yangsong Xu, recipients of the first round of Baker Department of Cardiometabolic Health top-up PhD Scholarships.
I am an international student from China. I just started my PhD study at the Baker Molecular Imaging and Theranostics Laboratory. I’m quite excited about my future scientific research and would like to thank all the people who help me along the way, because it is much more difficult to study abroad during the COVID-19 pandemic. I am so honored to accept the Cardiometabolic Health Scholarship in 2022, which gives me great encouragement for developing my skills and research into drug delivery systems for cardiovascular diseases. Additionally, this scholarship supports me by allowing me to maximise my time in Australia by allowing me to explore its diverse culture and make new friends.
I am honoured and grateful to be a recipient of the Cardiometabolic Health Scholarship. Not only does this scholarship acknowledge my academic achievements but also provides me with the support required for me to hone my expertise in respect to the cardiovascular immunology of Myocardial Injury (MI), also commonly known as a heart attack. With this scholarship, I hope to further dissect the influence of adaptive immunity in inflammation and cardiac remodelling following MI.

As an international student, it is my honor to receive the Baker Cardiometabolic Health Scholarship in 2022. I believe this scholarship not only acknowledges my previous academic achievements, but also empowers me to dedicate more time and energy to my PhD project, especially under the uncertain circumstances created by the pandemic. With the support from this scholarship, I hope to further explore my interest in medical research and advance my understanding on how specific lipid species contribute to immune cell development and their potential role in health and disease.
