A unique networking opportunity for researchers across the Hull, York and Scarborough campuses was provided by the third annual HYMS Postgraduate Research Conference.
Held at the Ron Cooke Hub, University of York, it showcased and celebrated the contribution of postgraduate researchers to the diverse research profile of HYMS with 23 poster presentations and 11 oral presentations from postgraduate research students.
The keynote lecture was given by Professor David Beech, Director of the Multidisciplinary Cardiovascular Research Centre, whose talk was entitled: “Calcium ion entry through TRPC channels: discovery, disease and drugs”.
Prizes for the best oral and poster presentations were handed out by HYMS Dean Professor Trevor Sheldon to Chloe Walsh and Constantine Simintiras.
Chloe Walsh received the prize for the best oral presentation for her talk on "The Effect of Serotype on Early and Late Mortality in Invasive Pneumococcal Disease in Hull and East Yorkshire 2002-2009".
Constantine Simintiras received the prize for the best poster presentation for his research on "Amino Acid and Glucose Profiles of Bovine Oviduct Epithelial Cell Secretion in Response to Oestrogen, Progesterone and Fibroblast Exposure."
Student representatives Arti Trivedi and Nicholas Hatton thanked everyone who submitted abstracts, the panel for providing valuable feedback and the organising committee and attendees for making it possible.
