BHF CRE Poster Competition Winners 2021
This year the BHF CRE annual poster competition started with a heats round, with all applicants being invited to present their poster individually to a pair of judges. The judges selected eight of the poster presenters to give a short talk about their work in the competition finals at the virtual Oxford BHF CRE Symposium on 10th November 2021.
The judges agreed that the standard of entries was very high, and we're delighted to announce the following winners:
Best non-student poster: Dr Sam Bose of the Burton Group, Department of Physiology, Anatomy & Genetics
Poster title: IP3-mediated Ca2+ release regulates atrial Ca2+ transients through stimulation of adenylyl cyclase 1 and cAMP
Best student poster: Helen Potts of the Mommersteeg Group, Department of Physiology, Anatomy & Genetics
Poster title: Characterising differences between the regenerative and non-regenerative immune response in Astyanax mexicanus
Many congratulations to you both for presenting your research with clarity and enthusiasm.
Also commended were the following entrants:
