03 August 2009
Researchers and students from UCT's Department of Zoology have picked up a slew of awards and honours this year.
Making a strong showing at the 2009 Zoological Society of South Africa Conference, held in Durban from 21 to 25 July, UCT took six student awards, including the best PhD oral presentation and the prestigious best overall student awards, both won by Alta de Vos (left) for her work on the herd habits of seals.
Among the many other achievements were Sandra Jasinoski's Young Investigator's Award at the International Biomechanics Conference, held in Cape Town, and Charmaine Uys, who won the 2008 RF Lawrence Memorial Grant.
