Monday 26 March 2018 2:10pm

As a way of encouraging undergraduate students into research careers, the University of Otago, Wellington hosts the Summer Studentship Programme each year. The Department of Medicine has had a number of students this summer participating in 10 week research projects.

During the ten weeks students have had a broad introduction to research in a subject area of interest to them. On 2 February they were given the opportunity to present their findings to staff with the chance of winning new departmental prizes.

A list of students who presented on their topics is below. Congratulations to everyone for taking up the challenge and especially Dhenisha and Devin who won 1st and 2nd prize respectively for their presentations.
