Members of our department have excelled in the research poster awards at this year's Oxford BHF Centre of Research Excellence Annual Symposium, held on Thursday 3 October 2019.
The symposium opened with a presentation of the Oxford BHF CRE Research Themes. The discussion set out the research opportunities across the CRE for collaborative working and future research. The day also included a poster-blitz session and talks from researchers across the BHF CRE including illustrations of support from the Centre. The Centre's judges awarded prizes to the best student and non-student posters.
