Experimental Biology Conference

Undergraduate student Yvonne Giesecke recently travelled to Chicago to attend the Experimental Biology Conference 2017 to present some of her research.  Yvonne said

It was such a great opportunity to present some of my undergraduate research at a big international conference.  I attended many talks from experts in the field, which was a great inspiration for further research.  Generally it was a really helpful experience to present my research to a critical audience of other researchers and to discuss further research methods that could be used.  I was also nominated as a finalist for the undergraduate poster prize of the American Association of Anatomists.  My poster was assessed by a panel during my regular poster presentation time.  I received a great feedback which will definitely be helpful for any presentations in my further career.  I was also extremely happy to be awarded the second prize for my presentation. Overall attending the conference in Chicago has been a really important experience and opportunity for me.

I would also like to thank both of my supervisors for this project: Dr John Lucocq (University of St Andrews School of Medicine) and Dr Kerim Mutig (Charite Universitaetsmedizin Berlin).
