We are very pleased to announce that Natalie Peer has been selected as the 2nd place winner in the Medical and Life Sciences category for her outstanding oral presentation. She will be receiving a $500 scholarship for her efforts.
This year’s event was the most competitive event that was hosted, with over three hundred applications in the initial round of submissions, and over a hundred and fifty presentations taking place the day of the event. There was an overwhelming amount of cutting-edge research and scholarship on display, and all are to be commended for their efforts.
