We would like to congratulate all of our 2018 CCS Graduate symposium prize winners! The judges were very happy with all the presentations. A major thank you also to the organizing team of PhD students, and to the supervisors who sportingly took part in the comic relief segments of the day!

Professor David Tarlinton, Head of the Department of Immunology and Pathology says,

"I would like to congratulate Ange, Amy and Lakshanie on their achievements in the Oral Presentation category at the CCS GR Symposium. Their success reflects their hard work and skill in describing complex concepts and experimental approaches to a multi-disciplinary audience that might otherwise have been focussed on morning or afternoon tea.

"I also note the achievement of Mark Wright in describing his work without using any scientific words (I am wondering how much of a positive this is) and ask you to join me in passing on commiserations to Ben Marsland for, presumably, just getting pipped at the post on the Explain my Graph category, despite a surprisingly insightful discussion of the relationship between dog behaviour, owner obesity and competitiveness of national rugby union teams.

"Lastly, I want to thank all those who helped in putting this together, particularly the students and even more especially the students on the committee. A great job."
