Top students for 2014 receive awards from the department at a ceremony at Bio21

The top students for Honours, third year and second year Biochemistry and Molecular Biology were acknowledged at an award ceremony held at the Bio21 Institute on Friday 24 April.

The outcome was very close, with only a few points separating first, second and third for each award.

The SCIEX prize for the top Honours student went to Angela Harrison. SCIEX sponsors the award and collaborates with the Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Facility at Bio21.

Emily Selig was awarded the third-year Dunlop Prize for the student with the highest aggregate for subjects BCMB30001, Protein Structure and Function; BCMB30002, Functional Genomics and Bioinformatics and BCMB30010, Advanced Techniques in Molecular Science.

Katherine Davies gained the second-year Exhibition for the highest total mark for BCMB20002, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology plus BCMB20005, Techniques in Molecular Science.
