Dr Trevor Yeung was awarded the prize for the Best Higher Surgical Trainee Presentation at the recent Inaugural Oxford Surgical Symposium.

Dr Yeung, who is an Academic Clinical Lecturer at the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, presented 'Endoscopic Molecular Imaging using Fluorescent Lectins allows Specific Identification of Colorectal Dysplasia and Cancer' (Trevor Yeung, Lai Mun Wang, Davide Volpi, Jennifer Wilding, Iain Tullis, Robert Newman, John Prentice, Gregory Weitsman, Gunnar Hansson, Malin Johansson, Hayley Davis, Simon Leedham, James East, Boris Vojnovic, Neil Mortensen and Walter Bodmer).

Held in the Academic Centre at the John Radcliffe Hospital on 10 July, the Inaugural Oxford Surgical Symposium was an opportunity for surgical trainees to share the research they are carrying out throughout the region and also the research being undertaken by academic trainees at the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences. Trainees were invited to submit abstracts in one of the following catergories: audit, clinical research and academic research. The top five abstracts in each category were selected for oral presentation and a prize was awarded to the best presentation in each category, as judged by the expert panel.

During the same symposium, Dr Fadi Issa won the prize for the best presentation in the academic session. Read the full story.
