Mr John Delaney
Sydney Vital would like to congratulate Mr John Delaney who was awarded a Travel Grant which supported his attendance to the 12th Annual European Society of Coloproctological (ESCP) scientific meeting in Berlin.
The meeting saw pathologists and surgeons come together to what was its largest annual meeting yet, to enjoy a schedule overflowing with the most current evidence in colorectal surgery. Keynote speakers included Professor Jan Deprest, Professor Paola Giamundo and Professor Harry Sokol.
Mr Delaney commented that Yves Panis of France provided an “early highlight,” outlining the evidence for preoperative bowel preparation. However, the keynote lecture from Professor SØren Laurberg’s presentation “from bedside to bench and back,” was possibly the highlight of the meeting according to Delaney. With insights from Laurbergs’ experience in the challenges and rewards of translational medicine and the intersection between basic sciences and clinical practices, it was an insightful talk with practical applications.
Good work John! Keep up-to-date with our scholarships, funding and awards and check out our grant schemes.
