Centre for Research in Translational Biomedicine (CRTB) Annual Conference 2012

The Portland Square Building hosted the second annual CRTB research day earlier this week.  The conference brought together sixty researchers interested in a range of biomedical, healthcare and clinical disciplines to discuss their work.  From a personal perspective it was great to see a number of undergraduates attend the conference and gain an insight into the research interests of new staff members.  If you would like to revisit Michael Jarvis's, Rich Boden's or Lynn McCallum's talks then please follow the hyperlinks. There were also several thought provoking presentations from outside speakers including Dr Will Gaze (European Centre for Environment and Human Health), Prof. John Zajicek (Peninsular College of Medicine and Dentistry), Prof Jonathan Benger (UWE and University hospitals Bristol), Dr Alison Curnow (PCMD) and Dr Frankie Rawson (University of Birmingham). Many post-graduates also presented their work during the poster sessions and congratulations should go to Hadil Al Hadi and Kelly Sillence who were awarded prizes for the best poster presentations at the conference.
