Hutton delegation at SEFARI Student Showcase 2019
"The SEFARI student showcase evidences the diversity and excellence of postgraduate research undertaken across all SEFARI research institutes"

The SEFARI student showcase, an event which shows the diversity and excellence of postgraduate research undertaken across all SEFARI research institutes, took place between the 10th and 11th June, with James Hutton Institute student Aurélia Bézanger achieving second place with a presentation titled “My raspberry root rot quest: the story behind infection”.

Besides the James Hutton Institute, research institutions represented at the event included Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland (BioSS), The Rowett Institute, Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh, Scotland's Rural College (SRUC) and Moredun Research Institute.

Joining Aurélia in the Hutton delegation were Francesc Ferrando Molina, Jose Barrera-Gavira and Ruth Hamilton, who all gave highly professional, well-prepared and beautifully delivered presentations.

Aurélia is supervised by Dr Eleanor Gilroy, a molecular plant pathologist based within the Institute's Cell and Molecular Sciences Group, and recently took part in the 2019 Soapbox Science event in Edinburgh, organised to bring science to the public and challenge gender stereotypes.
