Olivia Ruhen (PhD candidate in the SBMS) was awarded first prize of the ‘Rapid Fire’ competition at the 4th Thomas Ashworth CTC & Liquid Biopsy Symposium that was held in Sydney on 15-16 November.
This year’s theme focussed on the challenges and opportunities involved in implementing diagnostic assays into clinical practice and the latest advances occurring in liquid biopsy translational research.
Olivia was selected as one of the four best abstracts submitted to the conference and was selected as one of the best to present her work as an oral presentation. She was then selected as the first prize winner based on her outstanding presentation.
Dr Katie Meehan said, "Olivia gave an outstanding presentation and was a very worthy winner of this prestigious accolade. I had numerous colleagues and independent peers in the field approach me and express their consistent agreement with the award. She was a fantastic representation of UWA and our strive for excellence."
