Congratulations to 4th year BDS student Danyon Graham on winning the summer student presentation prize at the 226th Scientific Meeting of the Otago Medical School Research Society, held yesterday evening (11 May) at the Dunedin Public Hospital.
At last night's meeting, 2015-16 Division of Health Sciences summer students presented results from their summer studentship projects. Twenty five students submitted abstracts, of which ten were selected for the oral competition.
Two of the students selected for the oral competition were dental students; Danyon (supervised by A/Prof Brian Monk and his team) and third year BDS student Annie van Wichen (supervised by Dr Erwin Lamping and Dr Hee Ji Lee).
Having also won the Colgate Poster Competition Junior Category at IADR ANZ 2015 in Dunedin, Danyon will represent the Faculty in the Hatton competition at the IADR 2016 General Session in Seoul next month.
Congratulations to Danyon and supervisors, and to Annie for the admirable achievement of advancing to the oral presentation round from a strong field.
