Dundee students' success at annual BAHID meeting

14 Apr 2011

Students from the University of Dundee made a strong impact at the annual scientific meeting of the British Association for Human Identification (BAHID) on 9th April 2011.

Marie MacLennan and Ruth Watson, two students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design who are working with Jan Bikker on the classification of jewellery for the College of Life Sciences FP7 Interpol Project, won the prize for Best Poster.  The runner-up prize for Best Paper was won by Alison Brough who was an honours graduate of the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification two years ago and who is currently studying for her PhD jointly with Professor Rutty at Leicester and CAHID. The prize for the Best Student Paper went to Scott Patterson who has just completed his MSc with Caroline Wilkinson at CAHID

The turnout from Dundee at the conference was great with a large number of volunteers coming from the Honours year; the conference was organised by Pat Randolph-Quinney of CAHID and Jan Bikker of DJCAD.
