DoM Staff and Students from all departments in the Division of Medicine attended the retreat this year.  Academics and students presented their research through oral presentations and moderated poster presentations.

The DoM Retreat provided a snippet of what the Division of Medicine is all about - excellence, passion, ingenuity and collegiality.  You came out in great numbers, showed off your best science, and dazzled us all; you are fantastic. Its a pleasure and an honour to serve this Division. Again, we’d like to thank all who helped make the day a success - the organising committee, judges, speakers. We must also be thankful to our Dean, Professor Mark Emberton, who has always championed our annual away day both personally and at faculty level.  Finally, we must always remember our Professional Services team. Please be mindful that they make the magic happens in these tough and increasingly complex times!
Interim Director, Professor Derek Gilroy & Clinical Director, Professor Rachel Batterham

The Division would like to send congratulations to this year's prize winners who were awarded their certificates from Professor Batterham
