Gretel Finch wins Best Poster Prize at the Daphne Jackson Trust Research Conference

Congratulations to Gretel Finch who won the Poster Prize at the 2015 Daphne Jackson Trust Research Conference with her work on “Factors affecting maternal eating behaviour: indications for postpartum weight gain and obesity”. 

‌                                       

Gretel Finch, a Daphne Jackson Research Fellow in the Nutrition and Behaviour Unit (NBU), won the poster prize at the Daphne Jackson Trust Conference in October. 

 Her work on maternal eating behaviour was highlighted in the panel discussion, and stimulated considerable interest in the poster sessions.  The 2015 Daphne Jackson Research Conference held at the Wellcome Collection in London showcased the original research of 41 Daphne Jackson Fellows who have returned to their STEM careers following a career break. 

 The poster judges’ verdicts were “very high quality, enormous diversity across STEM, difficult to choose, but unanimous decision on winner”.  Gretel was presented with her certificate and prize from Maggie Philbin, CEO TeenTech, CIC (former BBC ‘Tomorrows World’ presenter).

 The Daphne Jackson Trust is the UKs leading organisation dedicated to realising the potential of scientists and engineers returning to research following a career break (http://www.daphnejackson.org/).
