Two UCL Institute of Opthalmology researchers won prizes at the latest Medical Research Council Neuroscience & Mental Health Board Showcase on 26-27 February.

More than 80 research groups were present, representing a variety of neuroscience projects from the major UK centres. Six scientists pitched their ideas to industry representatives and a poster session was also held.

Dr Astrid Limb was judged by the industry representatives to be the scientist who gave the best pitch, while Professor Robert MacLaren was awarded the first prize for his poster presentation.
