Conferences, workshops

The 25th Student Morphology Sciences Conference was held at the Rīga Stradiņš Unviersity (RSU) Institute of Anatomy and Anthropology on 14 May 2020. 48 students participated by presenting 35 research papers (four were dedicated to the microscopic study of tissues, while 31 – to anatomy and anthropology).

The conference was held online this year using Zoom. 100 participants attended the conference’s four sections. The jury announced two winning teams, while two teams came second and two teams came third. In addition, the company RePharm awarded two inducement prizes.

  • Ozols E. (Faculty of Medicine, 1st year)
    Anatomical Properties of Auriculae Cordis et Musculi Pectinati and Their Potential Correlation to Thromboembolic Events in Atrial Fibrillation

RePharm inducement prize

  • Podlesnaja M. (Institute of Anatomy and Anthropology)

Participants will get participation certificates of participation, diplomas and prizes. Students will most likely be able to receive them during the autumn semester, as the national safety restrictions change. 

The conference’s organisers want to note that the papers presented by those who came in 1st to 3rd place can count as the author’s 6th year final thesis paper. If there are several authors, however, only one of them can be selected upon mutual agreement.
