Brian took first place for Best Student Oral Presentation, which included a $300 award. Oral presentations were evaluated by a panel of three judges for the overall quality of research (significance to the research community, experimental design, and robustness of data presented) and the presentation itself (clarity or oral and visual components and grasp of research discipline).
Brian also took first place in SIP's inaugural video contest, which also included a $300 award. Submitted videos were a maximum of 3 minutes in length and were judged based on how well they addressed basic or applied aspects of invertebrate pathology. You can view Brian's winning video here.
Keep up the good work Brian!
