Photo of the week: Sara Mokhtar wins the CCS 3MT thesis heat

Sara Mokhtar presenting
Central Clinical School held its annual 3 Minute Thesis competition on August 12 with five participants presenting their research in under three minutes. Sara Mokhtar won the competition with her accessible description of her research, on amyloid beta protein phosphorylation of CRMP-2 and its regulation of neuritic dystrophy in Alzheimer's disease. Sara used the elegant and accurate analogy of a barren tree in Autumn to describe the brain of a patient suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Sara will now go on to compete in the Faculty 3MT competition which will be held 22 August. Well done Sara!
