Professor Nick Hastie of Edinburgh University, who chairs the BRC’s External Scientific Advisory Board, concluded the day by describing the presentations he had heard as “humbling and inspiring” and praising the BRC’s engagement with patients and service users, as well as its commitment to innovation. “You should all feel good about yourselves,” he said.
During breaks, delegates had a chance to see 12 BRC-funded projects in action, and nearly 50 BRC-funded students and post-doctoral researchers presented their work as part of a poster competition. Winners of the competition were Rosa Cheesman, Ben Greer, Peter Hawkins, Bradley Jermy, Luke Jelen and Ilyas Sagar-Ouriaghli. Professor Hastie also gave chair’s prizes to Avina Hunjan, Barbara Santangelo and Tao Wang.
