One of the highlights of the R30 conference was the poster competition; the first St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre event to draw participation from students, postdoctoral fellows and technicians of all divisions, and other institutions as well. There were 49 posters displaying basic research and clinical research findings. Seven prizes were awarded to participants of the R30 poster competition. They were PhD students Youjia Du and Yvette Shang from CCARM; Postdoctoral Fellow Xavier Louis and Research Associate Ashim Bagchi from ICS; MSc student Kevin Boreskie from ICS; and two teams of high school students (1) Storm Malcolm and Marla Malcolm and (2) Torrie Spence and Shauntay Malcolm.
The R30 poster competition was organized by Dr. Jeffrey Wigle and Dr. Thomas Netticadan.
Congratulations to all!
