Got it!

LUMC Student Research Award - bronzen veerLast Wednesday, to everyone’s surprise (especially mine), I won the LUMC Student Research Award 2012! This prize is awarded to the student who performed the best research internship. When your internship’s grade is high enough, you are invited to send in your report to a jury. They nominate three candidates and select a winner.

The award includes a bronze statue and a small grant. They misspelled my first name, but that’s no biggie. Just really happy and proud I won this one, and don’t let anyone say that studying as long as you can is a bad thing… 😉


LUMC Student Research Award

I’m still having a hard time believing it, but I’m nominated for the LUMC Student Research Awards. This prize is awarded to two students, one from biomedical sciences and one from medicine, who performed the best research during the previous year.

Because of the nice result of my master’s first internship at the department of Molecular Cell Biology, section Electron Microscopy, I was invited to send in my report. There were five other candidates, but only three were nominated. The award includes a grant of €2,500 which you can spend on courses, books or a visit to a congress.

The award ceremony is this Wednesday in the LUMC and I’m really curious to see who’ll win.
