A University of Sheffield medical student has been awarded a prize from medical research charity Arthritis Research UK.
Nick Mani, of Edward Street in Netherthorpe, won the charity’s annual prize in recognition of his research, which explored corrosion in orthopaedic metal hip implants.
Nick, aged 26, was awarded £250 and a silver medal, beating other students in his school to the prestigious award.
He said: “I was delighted to have had the opportunity to conduct this research and would like to thank Arthritis Research UK for their recognition of my work.
Keir Windsor, education manager at Arthritis Research UK, said: “Arthritis Research UK is leading the fight against arthritis and we want to ensure that those affected by the condition are able to remain active, doing the things that they love.
“We would like to congratulate Nick on his award.”
The medical student prize in musculoskeletal medicine is open to every medical school in the UK with one winner from each being awarded for an outstanding piece of written work.
Arthritis Research UK’s headquarters is based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
