There were 4 prizes to be won :- Best MPhil or 1year PhD poster; Best 2nd or 3rd year PhD poster; Best 4th year PhD or post-doc poster; Best over all.
Chin won best over all - Not bad considering he only began his studies in October! The title of his poster is 'Vihar; The Storm Chasers - The effects of Vihar over-expression on centrosome numbers'. A copy of the poster [plus the other winners' entries] can be found at:
