The award recognises the individual PhD student who has become an excellent and inquisitive researcher, who is an integral part of their research group, someone who encourages and supports more junior members of the team, and works alongside the research community more widely.
Josephine Agyeman-Duah works in the department's INTERGROWTH-21ST research group - an International Fetal and Newborn Growth Consortium dedicated to improving perinatal health through the development of new fetal and newborn growth standards, providing tools for the continuity of care from conception to 5 years of age. Her research focusses on neurodevelopmental assessment at age 2 for all children born preterm.
