Pradeep Kumar Sacitharan has won the European Calcified Tissue Society (ECTS) New Investigator Award at their annual conference in Rome, Italy. ECTS is Europe's major organisation for researchers and clinicians working in musculoskeletal sciences.

Pradeep presented his findings on ageing pathways which fail in cartilage leading to osteoarthritis. Speaking of his award, he said: "I am delighted to receive this award. This recognition at the European level encourages me to work even harder to reach my research goals and dreams".

The ECTS New Investigator Award recognises young investigators who submit top-ranking abstracts based on scientific merit to the ECTS annual meeting.

Pradeep is supervised by Dr James Edwards and Professor Tonia Vincent and previously also won a British new investigator award.
