Nadine Mirza, postgraduate student from the School of Health Sciences, has received runner up at the Max Perutz Science Writing Awards for her article ‘Avoiding gibberish when assessing for dementia’.

Nadine said:

“It was an unforgettable opportunity that’s really cemented my intrigue of science writing and communication and made clear to me its importance and impact. To every MRC student I highly recommend defying your writer’s block and submitting an entry because you never know who it may appeal to.”

The Max Perutz Award encourages MRC-funded PhD students to communicate their work to a wider audience by explaining why their research matters in just 800 words.

The award is named in honour of Dr Max Perutz who was awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and inspired students to use everyday language to share their research with the people whose lives are improved by their work.
