The inaugural competition for this prize is a Student Poster Competition, which will be held at MORU Bangkok, between 11am-2pm on Monday 30th November 2015 in the Similan Room. Niklas was a great advocate of student activity, and supervised numerous students as part of his role as Head of Pharmacology.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new annual prize. The Niklas Lindegårdh Memorial Student Prize is in honour of our former colleague.

We invite all MORU students to submit a poster, and if possible, to be present on the day to discuss their work and poster with MORU colleagues and staff. There will be a voting system in place for the best poster, and the winner, who will be announced at 4pm on the day, will receive a certificate, trophy and gift voucher.

If you wish to enter the Niklas Lindegårdh competition, please register your interest by email before Monday 23rd November to Sawanya (Aeh) Anumas, Sawanya@tropmedres.ac. Good luck to all!
