Kinda Al-Hourani, a final year DPhil student with Prof Hal Drakesmith (Associate Professor Immunology) in the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine and the Investigative Medicine Division, Radcliffe Department of Medicine, was awarded a Silver Medal in the Biological Sciences Category at the SET for Britain 2015 competition earlier this week. Additionally, Sana Suri, a DPhil student in the Department of Psychiatry, was awarded a Bronze prize.

SET for BritSETain invites early-stage and early-career researchers to present their research at Westminster, and the researchers are then judged by leading academics. The competition encourages, supports and promotes these early career researchers who are key to the UK’s continued progress in and development of R&D. 

Kinda and Sana were also joined by Dr Seint Lwin, a postdoctoral researcher in the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences and Dr Dilrini De Silva, a computational bioscientist in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine.
