Warwick chemist wins silver at poster competition in Parliament

International Edu News

Fabienne Bachtiger, a postgraduate at the University of Warwick, struck Silver at a competition in the House of Commons, for the excellence of her chemistry research, walking away with a £1,250 prize and medal. Fabienne grew up in Switzerland but moved to the UK when she was 12. She went to Durrington High School in Worthing.

She presented her research to dozens of politicians and a panel of expert judges, as part of the poster competition STEM for BRITAIN, on Monday 9th March. Fabienne uses computational methods to find out how to stop large ice crystals from forming in biological materials – for example, blood samples or the storage of other fluids.

STEM for BRITAIN aims to help politicians understand more about the UK’s thriving science and engineering base and rewards some of the strongest scientific and engineering research being undertaken in the UK.

The Parliamentary and Scientific Committee runs the event in collaboration with the Council for the Mathematical Sciences, the Institute of Physics, The Physiological Society, the Nutrition Society the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society of Biology and the Royal Society of Chemistry; with financial support from the United Kingdom Research and Innovation, Dyson Ltd, Biotherapy Services Ltd, Warwick Manufacturing Group, the Clay Mathematics Institute, the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, the Institute of Biomedical Science, the Biochemical Society, IEEE Communications Society, the Comino Foundation and the Society of Chemical Industry.
