We are delighted to announce that Pernille Søgaard, a 2nd year DPhil student at the Kennedy Institute, NDORMS has received an award for best presentation at the 32nd Winter School on Proteinases and Their Inhibitors held in Tiers an Rosengarten, Italy earlier this month.

We are delighted to announce that Pernille Søgaard, a 2nd year DPhil student at the Kennedy Institute, NDORMS has received an award for best presentation at the 32nd Winter School on Proteinases and Their Inhibitors held in Tiers an Rosengarten, Italy earlier this month.

The Winter School provides a forum primarily to young scientists allowing them to present their results for discussion with leading experts. The cup award recognises best science and best presentation. Pernille’s work and 8-minute presentation was chosen out of more than 70 presentations.

Speaking of her award, Pernille said: “Winning the cup was of course really exciting. It was my first time giving a presentation outside my department, so it was very encouraging that it went well and to have someone external finding our work interesting. Having to boil your project down to an 8-minute presentation is a nice exercise to think about how to communicate your research in a clear and exact way that makes people think what you are doing is interesting."

Dr Yoshi Itoh, of the Kennedy Institute and Pernille’s supervisor commented: “Pernille has done a fantastic job in both presentation and discussion. It was good that her results so far have been recognised, but this is just the beginning, and I look forward to seeing more! Well done!”
