School PhD students shine at local research event

Congratulations! To two of our PhD students who won research prizes at the recent PUPSMD Annual Postgraduate research event held at the St. Mellion Resort in Cornwall.  As part of the postgraduate training programme all registered students within the Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry, Peninsula College of Medicine & Dentistry (PU registered) and the School of Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences are invited to participate in the Annual Research Event 2014 and to present their work either via poster or a presentation to an audience consisting of peers, academic staff and other interested researchers.

Kelly Sillence (left) won the best oral presentation for her talk entitled:
“Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) of fetal sex and RHD status from maternal plasma: Digital versus Real-time PCR.”

Martin Helley (left) won the best poster presentation for his poster entitled:

“Toll-Like Receptor and Co-Receptor Expression in Trigeminal Sensory Neurons.”

Beating stiff competition from postgraduates of the other PUPSMD schools - Congratualtions to both of you and your research supervisors, the school is very proud of you!
