Success at the XXXIIth National Scientific Students’ Associations Conference
The Biology section of the XXXIIth National Scientific Students’ Associations Conference was organized at the University of Pécs 8th-10th April 2015. During these 3 days the lectures of 217 students from 18 different institutes were presented. The Bachelor, Master and PhD students presented their results to the panel of experts and to the further participants.

The primary aim of the event is not to compete but to introduce the world of researchers and the recent trends to the participating students. However the prize earned by a student still makes his/her supervisor proud. Lilla Szabó, third-year biology student works on her dissertation at the Regional Knowledge Centre, Eszterházy Károly University of Applied Sciences, and her supervisor is Dr. Ákos Juhász. Her essay about tracking the composition and stability of the microbiota in the large intestine applying microbiology and molecular biology techniques earned the special award of the Microbiology I. section.
