A dentistry PhD student from The University of Queensland has taken the crown in a major research communications competition for her work on prolonging the bond between fillings and teeth.
The UQ School of Dentistry made a pronounced impact at the 2018 International Association for Dental Research (IADR) General Session in London recently.
The School boasted a significant presence, with 13 oral presentations, eight posters and one competitor in the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition.
Congratulations to Dr Arosha Weerakoon on being awarded runner-up in the 3MT® competition.
There were 11 competitors from 10 countries in the 3MT® competition, including one other Australian entrant from the University of Melbourne who placed third.
Dr Weerakoon also presented a poster at the IADR, entitled Dentin Collagen Architecture Related to Site, Depth, and Ageing: "To test the null hypothesis that dentin collagen architecture does not change with site, depth or ageing".
I was extremely thrilled to win a Lord Mayor’s Convention Trailblazer Grant this year. This grant will enable me to travel and present at a prestigious international dental conference, increase networking opportunities and help to elevate my work and focus at UQ.
