Congratulations to M.Sc Clinical Speech and Language Studies student Irene Calvo who has won the award for best overall abstract and oral presentation at the European Society Swallowing Disorders Congress in Brussels. Her research on the diagnostic accuracy of clinical feeding evaluation to detect aspiration in children was carried out under the supervision of Professor Margaret Walshe. Ms Calvo has now been offered a place at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore to carry out research with Professor Ianessa Humbert, a world renowned expert in the field of dysphagia.
The Department of Clinical Speech and Language Studies was well represented at this international congress in Brussels. Ten M.Sc and PhD students with Professor Walshe presented their research in swallowing disorders. M.Sc Clinical Speech and Language Studies alumni were also amongst those invited to present their research. This highlights the growing volume of high quality research carried out in the area of dysphagia at the Department of Clinical Speech and Language Studies at Trinity College.
