Aberystwyth student scoops top prize at British parasitology conference

David Cutress, currently studying for his PhD at IBERS Aberystwyth University, received one of the top five poster awards at the British Society for Parasitology Annual Spring Conference in Dundee in April. David’s poster was one of 106 submitted into the competition, with the award being sponsored by Plos NTDs, Parasites and Vectors and the Malaria Journal and judged by BSP council members, Dr Justin Pachebat and Dr Poppy Lamberton. David’s poster and the topic of his PhD project is, “Towards the validation of an immune suppressor protein from liver fluke as a drug target”, supervised by our very-own BCHC staff, Prof. P. Brophy and Dr. R. Morphew of Aberystwyth University and also by Dr. D. Browne of Cardiff University.

Congratulations David!
