Posters presenters

Christopher is a medical student currently studying Part II Genetics. He will be delivering an oral presentation on “the association between alcohol consumption and osteoarthritis: a meta-analysis and meta-regression of observational studies”, an orthopaedic-themed epidemiological project he has co-first authored over the summer of 2020. This was done in collaboration with the Division of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Cambridge and the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, University of Oxford.

We are two fifth year medical students, with a research interest in cancer diagnostics. We have been working with the Primary Care Unit at the University of Cambridge, and in collaboration with the University of Melbourne, on this exciting project focussing on early cancer detection within primary care.

I am a fifth year medical student at the University of Cambridge, with research experience in public health and healthcare innovation. At the CUSCRS INSPIRE Conference 2021, I will be giving an oral presentation about a published study which explored the relationship between sleep duration and metabolic health in the UK general population.

I am a current 6th year Cambridge medical student and will be discussing a systematic review I undertook with the Centre for Disease and Activity Research (CEDAR) team. It investigated the association between important life transitions experienced during adolescence and obesity-related lifestyle behaviours. The impact of these transitions of physical activity, diet and weight could be an important focus of future obesity-prevention interventions.

5th Year medical student at the University of Cambridge with an interest in orthopaedic surgery, and Founder of PACare (an application aimed to streamline Perioperative care). Experienced in finance, business management and management consulting.

I am a fifth year medical student at the University of Cambridge. I am interested in Dermatology and Endocrinology. I will be presenting "A Closer Look at Chemotherapy-Induced Flagellate Dermatitis" which includes a case report and literature review on the topic. I would like to thank Dr. Bruno de Paula and my colleagues Anastasia and Deeya for their collaboration.

I am a final year medical student at the University of Cambridge. Through my clinical research I strive to gain the patient perspective with the aim of developing patient centred guidelines both at the national and trust level. My latest research analysed the influence of the COVID pandemic on patient preferences for elective hip and knee arthroplasty and whether private hospitals have a greater role to play in addressing growing waiting lists.

I am a 3rd year medical student intercalating in Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, with a research project focused on vectorcardiographic, attractor-based analysis of ECG’s for adaptive real-time arrhythmia detection. I have a great passion for biomedical research and application of computational methods for medical ends. I will be presenting my work on finding longitudinal associations between cognitive decline and accelerated motor impairment in elderly individuals, using data derived from the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing.

I'm Dana Saba, a 5th year medical student with an interest in infectious disease and tropical medicine. I'll be presenting my paper titled 'Characterising travel associated infection in Cambridge University Hospitals between 2007 and 2018. How quickly do we recognise them?

I'm a 4th year student at Magdalene and I've tried to do little bits of research throughout my time at Cambridge. I have a special interest in neuropsychiatry but I'll be presenting some work I did back in the first lab placement I took in 2019 under the virology/immunology domain. I'll be talking you through a model we developed of intestinal epithelium that will be used to investigate pathophysiology and pharmacological modes of action.

Hi I am Lydia Roberts and I am a fifth year Cambridge medical student. I am going to be presenting the results of a service evaluation I was involved in, which aimed to assess how we currently identify and investigate seizures in the neonatal population. I have a keen interest in paediatrics, and was lucky enough to work on this project with my supervisor Dr Pooja Harijan as a remote SSC during the covid pandemic.

I'm Catherine, a 5th year medical student here at the University of Cambridge. I'm passionate about translational research and my interests lie in clinical pharmacology, oncology and paediatrics. I’m grateful to have been involved in some fantastic clinical research in these areas, and today I present the results of a service evaluation assessing the efficacy of ibuprofen for closure of patent ductus arteriosus in preterm infants, as well as adverse effects associated with the treatment.

My name is Beesh Mahen. I am a final year medical student and the President of the Cambridge Neurological Society 2020/21. Neuroscience has fascinated me ever since I picked up a copy of “Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep?: A Neuroscientific View of the Zombie Brain”. Today I will be talking about how the use of positron-emission tomography in stroke patients has enabled us to quantify inflammatory activity in vivo.

Alice is a fifth-year medical student with an interest in global and public health. She will be presenting the findings from a recently published paper on interventions to improve social isolation and loneliness that can be implemented during Covid-19 lockdowns. The aim of the project was to better enable policy makers to effectively tackle the detrimental effects that social restrictions are having on population mental health.

I’m a 4th year medic, and I’m interested in cardiovascular and haematological research, as well as statistics in clinical medicine. I will be presenting my part II project on the signalling of protease-activated receptors and its modulation by receptor activity modifying proteins (RAMPs), which has interesting implications for novel anti-platelet pharmacology.

I am a final year graduate medicine course from Hughes Hall, I have completed my PhD funded by CRUK in the University of Glasgow at the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research. I am fascinated about machine learning and its application in clinical medicine especially in surgery, where my career aspiration lies.

My name is Bako Nouri and I’m currently a 4th year medical student at the University of Leeds. Today I will be presenting some research which I conducted at the University of Manchester as part of my MRes, entitled: Predicting treatment response to tocilizumab in rheumatoid arthritis.

Fatima Eshani is a 4th Year Medical Student at Cambridge University, she is interested in the fertility in women who have had cancer treatment. More specifically, whether or not they are able to conceive naturally following treatment. She will be presenting her 4th year SSC project entitled: what should we advise young women about their fertility after treatment for cancer?
