Medical student wins Neonatal Society bursary
27 November 2007
Jonathan Dunne, a fifth-year undergraduate in the School of Medicine, has won a national prize for a project carried out in Delhi on diabetes in pregnancy.
Jonathan was awarded the Neonatal Society’s student bursary, open to all medical and biological science students in the UK, and presented the results of his work at a Neonatal Society Conference in London on 22 November. Jonathan studied 100 diabetic pregnancies and 100 non-diabetic pregnancies, collecting data on the control of blood glucose and the complications in the baby. Diabetes in pregnancy is approximately three times more common in women in India than in women in the UK, but its incidence is increasing in both countries.
