2020 Central Clinical School graduate research symposium winners

L-R top row: Alex Dimitropulous, Coco Shi, Akshita Rana.
Lower row: April Raftery, Rishabh Sharma, Nicola Sergienko.

Central Clinical School's 13th annual graduate research symposium held on 4-5 November was very successful, with around 40 students presenting or participating from across the school, so it was a very strong field. See the booklet for pictures of all participants. 

A number of new sessions were introduced this year including a keynote presentation. Many thanks to Shane Nanayakkara for sharing his insights. Congratulations to the student organisers (some but not all pictured above) and both student and staff participants, and of course the winners! See list below and also on the CCS graduate research web page.

Oral Presentation

  • 1st - Nurul Aisha Zainal Abidin (ACBD) - $400

  • People's choice - Sarah Griffith (Neuroscience) - $50
  • Committee's choice award - Pia Campagna (Neuroscience)

Science Byte Presentation

This segment was introduced this year. It's a bit like the haiku of science presenting, whereby the art form is to convey your complex content effectively in a very short time, similar to the 3MT competition.

  • 1st - Katrina Kan (Neuroscience) - $200
  • 2nd - Paige Gray (Psychiatry) - $125
  • 3rd -  Georgia Symons (Neuroscience) - $75
  • People's choice - Robb Wesselingh (Neuroscience) - $50
  • Committee's choice award - Giulia Iacono (Immunology)

Raffle prize

  • Student best question prizes - Muhammad Javaid (Neuroscience) $50 and Georgia Symons (Neuroscience) $50
  • Student question raffle prize - Natasha Setiabakti (ACBD) - $50

Great Debate

Another inaugural segment this year, introduced as a parliamentary style entertainment. Maybe it's not surprising who won this round!

  • Staff team (Prof Helmut Butzkueven, Prof Nicola Harris and Dr Carlos Rosaldo)
  • Best Debater - Prof Helmut Butzkueven

Explain My Graph 

Always a favourite session, this one really brings out the inner standup comedian, who is best at cobbling together a fluent if nonsensical account of someone else's not previously viewed data.

  • Dr Maithili Sashindranath (ACBD)
