Yu Hang Zhao wins the best poster prize at the 11th International Symposium on Aeromonas and Plesiomonas (ISAP)

Yu Hang Zhao, widely known as Bob is a PhD student in the Academic Unit of Immunology and Infectious Diseases, supervised by Dr Jon Shaw. Bob won the best poster prize at the 11th International Symposium on Aeromonas and Plesiomonas held in Montpellier, France at the end of June. Bob’s poster was assessed by a panel of four international academics who questioned all the students about their posters and work. Ultimately he took first prize and won 500 Euros. Bob said that he was honoured to present his work at the congress and that it had been a huge encouragement to him. He said that, from his point-of-view, the congress not only provided updates of recent findings in the field of Aeromonas and Plesiomonas studies, but also accomplished its aim to build up connections between young and old generations of scientists.
