Nuffield Science Bursary

Priya Rao, Year 14, participated in the Nuffield Bursary Scheme organised by Sentinus. Priya was offered a 4 week summer placement with Professor John Moore and his team at the City Hospital, Belfast during which she worked on numerical analysis of Cystic Fibrosis related
bacteria and its antibiotic resistance trends. She presented her findings
in the form of a scientific paper and poster at a celebration day at the
Queen’s University, Belfast.
This experience has given Priya an invaluable insight into the world of scientific research and in the process she has further developed her
problem solving and communication skills.
