Andrew Pridmore, Head of Microbiology at Don Whitley Scientific, visited the University of Leeds on 7th May 2015 to present prizes to undergraduate students on the “Microbiology”, “Medical Microbiology” and “Microbiology in relation to Medicine” BSc degree courses.
The prizes are awarded each year for poster presentations of the students’ final year research projects. These are divided into two categories – laboratory projects and literature review projects.
The winners this year were as follows:
1st – Stephanie Cumberworth (pictured above with Andrew Pridmore)
2nd – Lucy Wallace
3rd – Michalis Christoforou
1st – Ellis Hart
2nd – James Florance
3rd – Hannah Wilsdon
In addition to these winning posters, Andrew was pleased to find three posters on the subject of the human intestinal microbiota. This is a subject of great interest to the microbiologists in our company and to our customers. The posters were:
Oliver Beniston – “The Gut Microbiome in Autism Spectrum Disorders”
Daniel Huntley – “Gut microbiota: a cause of bowel cancer?”
Beth Chasty – “The gut microbiome: a causal factor in child undernutrition?”
