The 7th CMIAD Retreat
The 7th annual CMIAD retreat was held at the Diamond (lecture theatre 5) on Thursday 18 April 2019.
As usual we had a great day of scientific interaction and discussion. The plenary lecture on Intracellular trafficking and processing of procollagen was delivered by Professor David Stephens from the University of Bristol.
Other presentations were delivered by Dan Humphreys, Walter Marcotti, Andy Fleming (APS), Victor Alfred (Bulgakova lab) and Jason King. As usual the posters presenting work from CMIAD PhD students and postdocs were a key element of the day with flash presentations providing an entertaining and informative way to advertise the posters.
Our congratulations to Lewis Hancock (Kathryn Ayscough lab) for winning best poster prize and to Maria Davies (Mark Collins lab) for the best flash presentation. We would also like to thank our sponsors, SLS and PHC, for supporting the retreat.
