The 2017 University Research Prizes









Both staff and postgraduate students from the School have again received accolades for their research winning four of this year’s 2017 University Research Prizes. These prizes were launched as part of the University’s 50th anniversary year and recognise outstanding research across the University. Rebecca O’Connor, a PhD student from the Griffin lab receives the overall University Prize for Postgraduate Research while Karen Baker from the Mulvihill lab receives the Faculty of Sciences Prize for Postgraduate Research. In addition, Dr Alessia Buscaino (pictured) will receive the Faculty of Sciences Prize for Consolidator Research and Professor Darren Griffin the Faculty of Sciences Prize for Advanced Research.

Congratulations to our winners who will pick up their prizes at an Awards Ceremony in April.
