Award for Phillip Benedetti

Nick Stephens and Phillip Benedetti

Students studying for the Master’s in Bioscience Enterprise professional practice degree completed their studies during a day of presentations held at The Nucleus, Chesterford Research Park. This annual Symposium brings together the students of the Bioscience Enterprise programme, the University Examiners and also business executives who over the past three months have hosted the students in their companies during a practical internship. The students have studied a wide range of topics in great depth and are challenged with describing to the audience their research and recommendations in only ten minutes. Examples of projects include 'improving Access to Affordable Healthcare in India' for the Wellcome Trust and 'Stem Cell Transplantation in Diabetes' with Pfizer Regenerative Medicine. Each year the RSA Award is presented to the student who produces the most excellent results and dissertation, and this year Phillip Benedetti received the award for his work conducted at OI Pharma Partners on Open Innovation in Drug Discovery and Development. The award and accompanying £500 cash prize was presented by Nick Stephens, CEO of life science recruitment company RSA at a celebratory dinner at Jesus College.
