A department-wide image competition has yielded a wide variety of beautiful images showcasing the diversity and breadth of DPAG's science. Two prize winners and a further three commended pictures are announced.

In Trinity Term 2023, Head of Department Professor David Paterson ran an image competition to refresh the science displayed on the Sherrington building walls. DPAG researchers and graduate students were invited to take part and a wide variety of research images across a range of styles and themes were carefully considered.

Congratulations to our joint first prize winners, both based at the IDRM - postdoctoral research scientist Dr David Grainger of the Stone Group and DPhil student Judy Sayers of the Riley Group, who each receive a £75 Blackwell's e-voucher. Their pictures will be framed and displayed in the Department. 

Additionally, three commended pictures have been selected to be framed and displayed in the Department. Congratulations to Dr Matthew Stower of the Srinivas Group, to Sumedha Nalluru,a recently graduated DPAG MSc Neuroscience student, and also to Dr David Grainger, who in addition to his first prize winning entry, has an additional commended image.
