Scientist to show work at parliament
3:00pm Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
A MALVERN PhD graduate is visiting parliament on Monday to present a panel of politicians and expert judges with some of his research as part of the Science, Engineering and Technology for Britain competition.
Dr Tom Lanyon-Hogg, aged 27, will show his poster explaining research into developing techniques to detect biological interactions and he will be judged against dozens of other scientists in the only national competition of its kind.
“The SET for Britain competition is a great chance to present my research to a wider audience, and is a unique opportunity for early-career scientists to engage with MPs,” said Dr Lanyon-Hogg, who was shortlisted for the honour from hundreds of applicants.
His research has also been entered into the Biological and Biomedical Sciences session of the competition, with the top scientists being awarded £3,000.
