Bert Thurston Prize 2012

The Bert Thurston Prize was established in 2009 for the best Intercalated (Scheme B) student, judged on the basis of a poster presentation. The intercalating (Scheme B) students all spend an extra year part-way through the course, and this is spent working full-time on a research project. The prize-winner for 2012 was Timothy Fleming, supervised by Dr C Gibson and Dr A Young, in the School of Psychology. Tim’s project was in the area of investigating mechanisms of pre-ischaemic conditioning in rodents.

The prize was presented by Professor Bert Thurston himself at a lunch on Friday 1 June 2012. Professor Thurston took an intercalated BSc during his student years and found it to be a most valuable experience and a great start to his research career.

Dr Caroline Beardsmore, Chair of the BSc Intercalated Degree Committee, said ‘once again the standard of the projects was very high this year and there were some exceptional posters. The marking of the posters is shared between the staff and the students themselves, which is a great way for the students to learn the art of assessing what makes a good poster’.
