Betty Hay Award

The EMT field has developed from the pioneering work of Dr. Elizabeth Hay and her students during the late 1970s when she began to discuss the differences between epithelial cells and mesenchymal cells in the embryo. The first experimental investigation of EMT developed from the immersion of embryonic epithelial cells into an extracellular matrix (Greenburg and Hay, 1982).

TEMTIA recognizes her seminal contributions to the field through the Betty Hay Lecture, delivered at the EMT Conference and the awarding of the Betty Hay Award for a young female scientist who has established her laboratory within the last 5 years.

The successful Betty Hay Award recipient will receive an award of € 500.
