Postgraduate students win travel awards

by IDReC

Two PhD students, Juan Sanhueza and Emilie Vallée, from mEpiLab/EpiCentre both successfully competed for student travel awards funded by the US National Institute of Health (NIH), at the 2013 International Leptospirosis Conference in Japan.

The criterion for an award was the quality of their abstracts. The title of Juan’s presentation was “Occupational exposure and risk factors for Leptospira in New Zealand workers” and the title of Emilie's abstract was “Subclinical effects of Leptospira borgpetersenii serovar Hardjo on New Zealand sheep production”.

Congratulations Juan and Emilie!
