DPAG postdocs and interdepartmental poster session runner up winners Nikki Ved and Jakub Tomek shown in front of their winning poster displays

On Thursday 16 May 2019 Postdoctoral Research Scientists from our Department, the Department of Biochemistry and the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology gathered at the Biochemistry Building for an Interdepartmental Poster Session.

The event gave researchers the opportunity to disseminate their research whilst also learning about research from a wide range of colleagues, and culminated in the announcement of the winners of the poster prize.

 

It was a great meeting, very smoothly organised and its single-afternoon duration was just right. I could present my results to a broad range people of various disciplines, and similarly hear about their research - it was very interesting to see the diverse range of research in the departments involved. The friendly nature of the event made it a lot of fun in addition to productive!
- Dr Jakub Tomek

Congratulations are in order for DPAG's two runner up winners, Nikita Ved from the Sparrow Group who presented  "Investigating the perturbation of neural crest cells in diabetic embryopathy" and Jakub Tomek from the Herring Group who presented "Development, calibration and validation of a novel computational human ventricular cardiomyocyte model in healthy, diseased, and drug block conditions."

 

I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to present my work to an unfamiliar audience, which is not normally the case when you go to meetings. I also really enjoyed learning about what other research is happening within Oxford, getting to know postdocs from other departments and building my network. I look forward to the next joint meeting! - Dr Nikita Ved
