Leeds students take their work to Parliament

Several Leeds students and researchers are attending Parliament today (12 March) to present their work in the 'SET for Britain' poster competition.

Those attending include:

Tom Benians, Faculty of Biological Sciences
James Lloyd, Faculty of Biological Sciences
Jo Galloway, School of Physics and Astronomy
Paul Beales, School of Chemistry
Danielle Miles, School of Chemistry
Jayakanth Kankanala, School of Chemistry
Stephanie Fiedler, School of Earth and Environment

Andrew Miller 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 scientists are the architects of our future and SET for Britain is politicians' best opportunity to meet them and understand their work."

The Parliamentary and Scientific Committee run the SET for Britain competition in collaboration with The Royal Academy of Engineering, The Institute of Physics, the Society of Biology, The Royal Society of Chemistry, the Physiological Society, the Wellcome Trust and the Society of Chemical Industry, with financial support from BP, Airbus/EADS, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, AgChem Access, Oxford Instruments, IBMS and GE Hitachi.
