Congratulations to Kirsten Ward-Hartstonge, PhD student in the Kemp Lab, who took away the 'Buck Award' for Best Student Presentation at last week's NZASI (The New Zealand Branch of the Australasian Society for Immunology) conference in Christchurch.

The Buck Award is named for the late Associate Professor Glenn "Buck" Buchan, a leading immunologist of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology.

Kirsten's talk was entitled Blimp-1 + IL-10-producing regulatory T cells are associated with longer diseasefree survival in colorectal cancer.
