Experimental Biology Conference

Friday 25 August 2017

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).
