INSPIRE: Best Oral Presentation

INSPIRE: Best Oral Presentation

As part of the activities funded by the INSPIRE program at the University of Aberdeen, two competitive national summer scholarships were on offer for the summer of 2019.

Rory Maciver, a dental student from The University of Glasgow, was awarded one of the scholarships and joined us to conduct a project in head and neck cancer.  Under the supervision of Dr Rasha Abu Eid (Institute of Dentistry), Dr Frank Ward (Institute of Medical Sciences) and Professor John Gibson (Institute of Dentistry), the focus of the project was to look at the expression of immune checkpoints in head and neck cancer cell lines.

We are hugely proud to announce that during the Scottish Oral and Maxillofacial Society Annual Conference held in Glasgow on the 7th and 8th November 2019 (https://www.soms.scot/), Rory presented his exciting work, and was awarded the prize for the Best Oral Presentation!

This is a great success not only for Rory, but for research collaboration between the two dental schools at Aberdeen and Glasgow and the INSPIRE scheme that funded Rory’s project. The INSPIRE scheme is coordinated by the Academy of Medical Sciences and supported by the Wellcome Trust.      

If you are interested in hearing more about Rory’s work, please attend the summer scholarship symposium next week on Wednesday 20th November from 2.30pm at Suttie Centre, Foresterhill, where Rory will be presenting a poster that summarizes his project.
