Uppsala Photon Science Award


Donglei Chen's PhD thesis The Origin of Tooth Replacement. Three-dimensional Synchrotron Histology Visualizes the Dental Development of Silurian Stem Osteichthyans has been awarded this year's Uppsala Photon Science Award for the best PhD thesis in photon science at Uppsala University. Donglei's research, which is internationally unique, uses synchrotron microtomography to 'dissect' 425 million year old fossil jawbones of the earliest known bony fishes and reconstruct the development of their dentitions.

Donglei will give a talk about her research on the "Fotonens dag”.
