Many members of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology attended last week's QMB (Queenstown Molecular Biology) meeting, winning several awards and providing the 'wow' factor for judges.
Congratulations to all those who presented at the event, in particular those who received prizes.
Five students, Shaun Ferguson (PhD, Ronson Lab), Lucia Malone (PhD, Fineran Lab), Mariya Yevstigneyeva (PhD, Fineran Lab), Zoe Williams (PhD, Cook Lab) and Mel Knottenbelt (MSc, Cook Lab), won poster prizes.
And last but not least, the Nobel Laureate Professor Bruce Beutler presented the 2017 Andrew Shelling Memorial trophy (also known as the Fashionomics award) to Associate Professor Peter Fineran for his bright and eye-catching bacteriophage costume.
