The School of Earth Sciences is happy to announce that Duncan Murdock, a current third year PhD student, has received the 'Young Investigator Award' at the 10th International Conference on the Chemistry and Biology of Mineralized Tissues in Arizona for his paper on the 'Evolutionary origins of animal skeletons'.
The aim of the 10th ICCBMT meeting was to disseminate state-of-the-art information about the structure, function, and interactions of the mineral, matrix and cellular components in bones, teeth, and other mineralized vertebrate and invertebrate tissues while encouraging collaboration among investigators in different disciplines.
With such a diverse range of scientists in attendance, it's a great achievement to have beaten the competition. Congratulations Duncan!
