The Centre for Brain Research congratulates Malvindar Singh-Bains on winning the prize for ‘Best Student Poster Presentation’ at the recent Australasian Winter Conference on Brain Research held in Queenstown.
Her presentation was identified as the winner from a field of 66 entries, by a panel of ‘undercover’ judges, who mingled with conference-goers evaluating the presenters and their posters.
Malvindar’s poster, titled ‘The Human Globus Pallidus in Huntington’s Disease: Volume reduction and differential cell loss between external and internal segments’, covers the research she is undertaking for her PhD, and the methods used to evaluate and compare cell loss and volume reduction.
Malvindar’s approach of presenting as though ‘telling a story’ obviously worked for her. She says, ‘I feel rather humble about this because there were so many fantastic posters demonstrating high quality research on display. I’m really proud to represent the Centre for Brain Research, and I thoroughly enjoyed both the conference, with such a variety of neuroscience on offer, and the beauty of Queenstown at this time of the year!’
