Students present research to MPs in STEM for Britain finals
We recently welcomed Loughborough MP Jane Hunt to the Centre for Biological Engineering on campus, to find out more about PhD student, Praveenkumar Kaveri’s project, which was presented as part of the STEM for Britain finals in Westminster last month.
STEM for Britain gives early-career researchers the opportunity to present their research in five key areas - biological and biomedical sciences, chemistry, engineering, mathematical sciences and physics. Over 500 researchers apply, and only a third are chosen to present their research to Members of Parliament and Peers.
Praveenkumar developed a Rapid Early Affordable Diagnostic test for infection and Resistance (READ-R) under the supervision of Dr Sourav Ghosh and Dr Guido Bolognesi, and was one of three Loughborough students who presented their research as part of the STEM for Britain finals in Westminster.
