Prediction & Causal Pathways Towards Disease – What Can Molecular Markers Tell Us?
Tuesday, 12th March 2019
Our 2019 conference was held in Bristol on the 12th of March. We welcomed attendees and presenters from across UK, the rest of Europe and the USA. Selected abstracts from the meeting will shortly be published in mutagenesis.
Every 3 years, MEGUK honours a leading researcher with an award in recognition of outstanding achievement in the field of molecular epidemiology. We were delighted to present this year’s award to Professor Hilary Powers. Professor Powers is currently professor of nutritional biochemistry in the department of oncology at the University of Sheffield.
As well as receiving her award, Professor Powers gave a fascinating review of her research career to date under the title “Understanding vitamin function; a personal odyssey”.
As well as our MEGUK Medal Winner award, we also awarded Early Career Researcher Prizes for best presentation (selected by the audience) and best poster (selected by Professor Powers).
