Pradeep Kumar Sacitharan, a final year student at the Kennedy Institute, has won the Bone Research Society (BRS) New Investigator Award at the 3rd Joint Meeting BRS/BSMB, which took place in Edinburgh earlier in the month. The BRS is one of the largest national scientific societies in Europe dedicated to clinical and basic research into mineralised tissues, and is the oldest such society in the world.

This year the BRS had a joint annual meeting with the British Society of Matrix Biology which was held Edinburgh. Each year at this annual meeting, abstracts are blind scored for scientific merit and the author/s with a top scoring abstract receive the award.

Pradeep is supervised by Professor Tonia Vincent and Dr James Edwards at NDORMS and is working on the relationship between ageing and osteoarthritis.

After winning the award the final year student said: "I am delighted to receive this award so early in my career. I have attended the BRS meetings in the past and received great support from the society. It is an honour for my work to be recognised by the society and its senior scientific members. I hope to build upon this success and contribute more to the field in the future." We wish Pradeep the best of luck in his future research endeavours.
