Finalist Prizes 2010

The Edgar Palamountain Award for Excellence

In 1993, a solid Gold Medal, ‘The Edgar Palamountain Award for Excellence‘, was instituted in memory of Edgar Palamountain, Chairman of Council at Buckingham from 1979 to 1984. The award is given every year to the undergraduate who is judged ‘first among equals’.

Christopher Doe with Chloe Woodhead“I am extremely honoured to have been awarded this prestigious prize. I never dreamed that I would be considered to be ‘first amongst equals’ when I started my course in January 2008.

My time at Buckingham was probably the most enjoyable two years of my life. I had such a positive experience in both the academic and social aspects of University life. I was fortunate enough to meet some amazing people here, and I feel as though I have built good and long-lasting relationships with fellow students, as well as the academic and administrative staff in the Business School.

The Graduation Ceremony was a very proud moment for me, as it was the culmination of two years of studying and hard work. Being presented with the Edgar Palamountain Award for Excellence served as a special end to my time at Buckingham.”

The Dame Barbara Shenfield Award

In 2005, a solid Gold Medal, ‘The Dame Barbara Shenfield Award‘, was instituted in memory of Dame Barbara Shenfield, a founder member of the University’s Council. The award will be made annually to the postgraduate who is judged to have achieved the best overall performance of the year.

Avijit Guha Roy with Mr Shenfield & Mr Lewis“The Dame Barbara Shenfield Medal is awarded to the postgraduate student who has achieved the best performance over the year. I am therefore both delighted and honoured to receive this prestigious award. This is truly the result of the excellent support and mentoring given to me by my supervisors, Dr Kenneth Langland and Dr Claire Stocker, and also the encouragement by the Clore directors, Professors Mike Cawthorne and Jon Arch. I have always found the Clore lab to provide an exceptionally intellectually stimulating environment especially through the efforts of Drs Jacqueline O’Dowd, Mohamed Zaibi, Ed Wargent and David Hislop. I would also like to thank my colleagues Maysson Ibrahim, Amgad Al-Habian and Malgosia Kepczynska, Anita Roberts and Julie Cakebread for helping me focus my ideas. During my studies investigating transcriptional profiling in a model of programmed metabolic disease using gene network and pathway mapping tools these exceptional people have been instrumental in my achievements. Along with being a world-class research facility, the Clore lab is focused towards individual student development. I am currently pursuing my DPhil at the University of Buckingham because, unlike other universities, this research facility at the Clore lab provides students with unprecedented support. I would highly recommend anyone interested in metabolic disease, specialising in obesity and type 2 diabetes to consider the University of Buckingham for higher education.”
