Research Day is an annual showcase of the research at St George’s, University of London. It is an opportunity to find out more about the exciting discoveries taking place and a chance to engage colleagues from other areas in your work.
We are pleased to announce that this year we will once again be able to offer an exceptional poster prize of £1000 for the most innovative research poster. The Chrissie Fenske Research Poster Prize has been funded by a generous donation in memory of the late Dr Chrissie Fenske, by Chrissie’s husband and brother. Chrissie worked at St George’s and was passionate about the scope and potential for gene research. This will be an annual prize running for a period of approximately 13 years.
