YY (Hui Xin Ong) was invited to present a podium at DDL 2012 in Edinburgh for the Pat Burnell award. This prestigious invitation is only offered to a handful of young researchers each year and YY's talk on 'inhaled ciprofloxacin liposomes' was received with great interest. Concurrently, Jesslynn Ooi received an award for the best poster of the conference for her work on 'HFA drug interactions in the gas phase'.
Both Jess and YY spent time in the UK (at UCL and Kings College, respectively) earlier in the year after being awarded an FP7 supported fellowship. DDL is an annual conference focussed on respiratory technology and has around 300 international delegates. The conference is housed n Edinburgh International Conference centre each December.
