The Science Postgraduate Research Showcase is an annual event that highlights excellent research conducted by postgraduate students in the Faculty of Science at UNSW Sydney. Students must prepare a 250 word abstract, a poster for display and deliver a one minute talk outlining their research. Over 100 students entered this year which included Lana Ly and Emily Vohralik from the Crossley/Quinlan Lab. This year, there were also several one-minute presentations from the academic staff on their research. Our supervisor and Scientia Fellow, Kate Quinlan, participated in this with her talk on "Investigating a skinny mouse to find new anti-obesity drugs".

Lana and Emily both won prizes for their research - Lana winning a second place prize for her entry on "Fighting blood diseases with POKEMON", and Emily winning a third place prize for her entry on "Engineering the immune system to fight obesity".
