Prize winners at the Annual Postgraduate Research Day held in the Welsh School of Pharmacy
25 April 2012
Once again a successful annual Pharmacy Postgraduate Research Day was held in the Redwood Building on Wednesday 18th April. The New Lecture Theatre was the venue for 12 third year PhD students to present their work as 10 minute oral presentations followed by discussion, whilst 8 of their second year colleagues had prepared presentations for the Poster Session held in the morning in the neighbouring workshop room.
One poster and three oral presentations were awarded prizes by a panel drawn from the academic staff of the school as follows:
PGResearchDay2012-Prizewinner Catherine Golics with Prof Treasure
PGResearchDay2012-Prizewinner Alexander Lowe with Prof Treasure
Third year, oral presentations:
PGResearchDay2012-Prizewinner William McCully with Prof Treasure
PGResearchDay2012-Prizewinner Blanka Gonczy with Prof Treasure
Second year, poster presentation
Professor Elizabeth Treasure, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, attended the lecture session and presented the prizes afterwards.
Prof. Jon Erichsen, School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, was the guest judge of the posters.
The Postgraduate Research Day has been held annually in the Welsh School of Pharmacy since the start of this century and provides a valuable experience for the PhD students during their study period in Cardiff to present their endeavours to their peers in a supportive environment. It is currently organised by Dr Emma Kidd with assistance from Wendy Davies (Post-graduate administrator) and an organising committee from within the School.
