Kinda Al-Hourani, a final year DPhil student in Hal Drakesmith's lab in the MRC Human Immunology Unit, took a poster describing her project ("Activins and antiviral immunity") to the House of Commons a few days ago, to compete in the SET for BRITAIN 2015 Event.  

Kinda presented her poster to a variety of scientists, Members and Lords / Ladies including Andrew Miller MP, Chair of the HoC Science and Technology Committee.  As a result, Kinda received the Silver Medal (and £2000) out of hundreds of entries in the Biological sciences category. http://www.setforbritain.org.uk/2015winners.asp
