Travel Grant winners report


"...As a current medical student undertaking a summer research project investigating the barriers associated with the implementation of familial hypercholesterolaemia in Scotland, I found the conference both enjoyable and incredibly helpful to see how these problems are being addressed not just in Scotland but across the world. The conference also allowed me to present a poster to an audience of experts in the field of lipidology, and despite not winning any awards it was a fantastic learning opportunity... I am confident that the experience I gained will benefit both my project and my future medical career."
