Dr Joe Yip recipient of the 2021 Emerging Researcher Award

Dr Joe Yip, a Scientific Officer in the Centre for Neuroendocrinology at the University of Otago, was awarded the 2021 Emerging Researcher Award.

Joe researches ‘plasticity’ in the mechanisms controlling prolactin secretion that enable maternal behaviour and lactation to occur. Joe was scheduled to present his award lecture at the 2021 MedSci meeting but COVID had other ideas, so he will instead present sometime in 2022.
