President's Prize winners

President’s prizes Continuing the coverage of winners from around the country

High achievement at Bradford

Miriam Sadiq received an IBMS President’s Prize at a University of Bradford graduation ceremony, held in July. 

Miriam was the highest achieving student for the year, with a degree average of 82.7%, and she graduated with first-class honours. 

Cellular science was her chosen specialism during the final year of the course.

Miriam is pictured receiving her award from IBMS Council member Joanna Andrew.


Great success at Greenwich

Jayne Wright was this year’s recipient of an IBMS President’s Prize at the University of Greenwich.  

Jayne joined the university as a part-time Foundation Degree student and completed her BSc this year.  

While studying, Jayne worked as a medical laboratory assistant in microbiology at Eastbourne District General Hospital. 

She is justifiably proud of this achievement, having had a gap in education of more than 30 years, and is hoping to continue her studies with the IBMS Specialist Portfolio and eventually a Masters qualification.  

Jayne is pictured receiving her award from Dr Paul Dyer, Programme Leader, BSc Biomedical Science.


Brighton bonanza

Josh Travers is this year’s recipient of the IBMS President’s Prize at the University of Brighton. He undertook a sandwich degree and his placement, along with the final-year research project, was carried out in the Blood Sciences Department, Frontier Pathology, Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, where he subsequently gained employment.
