A PhD student who researches the development of painkillers using spider venom toxins has been recognised internationally.

28-year-old Lucka Bibic, who studies at the University of East Anglia, was recognised by the 2018 Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) SciFinder Future Leaders programme, which identifies and provides a network for emerging scientific researchers.

Ms Bibic has also created a virtual reality game, “Bug Off Pain”, which places the viewer inside the human brain, and led the award winning team behind Cryothaw Heart, a solution that allows hearts to be frozen and then reanimated.

She said: “It feels simply fantastic to be conferred this prestigious international award.”

The nominees will visit the CAS headquarters in Ohio in August to collaborate on new initiatives that support the scientific community and exchange ideas about the role of information within the research process.
