Maastricht Science Programme Alumna Patricia Ogger wins national thesis award for biology.

Out of many applications sent in by students from all over the Netherlands, Patricia Ogger (and five others) were nominated for the award, also known as ‘The Darwin’.

During the National Biology Student Congress (LCBS) in Burgers’ Zoo, the nominees had to present their thesis in front of a jury. Thanks to Patricia Ogger’s passion and in-depth knowledge on the subject, she won the national thesis award for biology.
