The recent IDM Postgraduate Student Publication Competition, an initiative of the Institute Transformation Committee, was adjudicated by Emeritus Professor Siamon Gordon, Chair of the IDM’s International Scientific Advisory Committee and Emeritus Professor Wieland Gevers, Founding Director of the IDM. A total of 13 original research and 4 review articles were received from which the winning entries were selected and announced at a prize-giving event held in the IDM on 26 November. All 17 publications illustrate the high quality of research underway in the IDM and highlight the great depth of talent in our next-generation researchers.
