An Aberdeen student has been awarded a prestigious prize recognising 'outstanding academic excellence in postgraduate researchers' for her work on one of the least understood pain syndromes in medicine today.

Stefanie Doebl, who is in the third year of a PhD based in the Epidemiology Group within the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition, was awarded the 2020 British Federation of Women Graduates (BFWG) Johnstone & Florence Stoney Prize.
