Congratulations to all our 400-level postgraduate students who took part in the Department's 400-level Poster Day. The event was an opportunity for them to present and discuss their research with their fellow students and staff of the Department.

Ten students took part in the event and for six of them, their posters were assessed as part of the core ANAT458 paper. We were very pleased to see some of the NEUR490 students presenting their Anatomy based research projects also as staff value seeing the range and general high standard of work from all our 4th year students.

Congratulations to Bella Grant who was presented with the Best Poster award for her poster A Memoir in Bones: life, disability and death in Victorian Milton.

Bella undertook a detailed osteobiography within the bioarchaeology of care approach, of a European male who was excavated from St John's Cemetery, a mid-to-late nineteenth-century burial ground in Milton. She used biological material, surviving historical records and medical literature to establish the possible health challenges experienced by the individual and what level of care he would have required while he was alive.

Bella's winning poster will be displayed in the Department where we hope it will inspire next year's 400-level students.
