gre-phd-poster-winners-2016Today the SLS PhD Posters Session was held within the School. This session provided PhD students in their third year the opportunity to present their research to their fellow researchers. We had 38 students from across all the different departments take part. The judges commented that again all the posters were of a very high standard but there could only be four prize winners, two of whom were from GRE.

They were Yasir Malik, a student joint between Anton Gartner and Angus Lamond with a poster entitled “Starvation-longevity-ageing: Old bedfellows in new adaptations” who won £150 and Michael Batie from Sonia Rocha’s lab won with a poster entitled “The role of chromatin structure and JmjC histone demethylases in the hypoxic response” who won £100. Congratulations to the winners and well done to all that took part.

The event was kindly sponsored by Dundee Cell Products.
