Organised by the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee, STEM for BRITAIN is a major scientific poster competition and exhibition, held annually at the Houses of Parliament. This year, the event involved 120 early-career research scientists, engineers, technologists, and mathematicians, shortlisted from hundreds of applicants. Finalists presented their research to dozens of politicians and a panel of expert judges, with prizes awarded for the posters that best communicated high level science, engineering, or mathematics to a lay audience.

Stephen Metcalfe MP, Chairman of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, said: ‘This annual competition is an important date in the parliamentary calendar because it gives MPs an opportunity to speak to a wide range of the country’s best young researchers. These early career engineers, mathematicians, and scientists are the architects of our future and STEM for BRITAIN is politicians’ best opportunity to meet them and understand their work.’

The four finalists from Medical Sciences are:

  • Jennifer Clara Herrmann, a DPhil student in the Radcliffe Department of Medicine
  • Grace Meaker, a DPhil student in the Radcliffe Department of Medicine
  • Anna Rose, a Clinical Lecturer in the Department of Paediatrics
  • Chloe Tubman, a DPhil student in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics
