The Otago School of Medical Sciences' annual Postgraduate Colloquium was attended by a huge proportion of Microbiology and Immunology students, with several of them taking out top prizes at the two-day event.
The first competitive event of the Colloquium was the Poster Evening on Tuesday, with Rachel Herron taking out second place and Hannah Hampton coming third. The first-place winner was Safina Gadeock from the Physiology Department.

First place in this event went to Colin Davies for his talk titled “Murine Norovirus Manipulation of the host Cell Cycle”. Second place went to Megan Elder from the Department of Anatomy, and third place to Braeden Donaldson from Microbiology & Immunology and Pathology.
