Paul Award

This prize is up for grabs if you present a paper in our New Researchers Forum at our annual conference. You can win £250 + free student SGT membership for the year for the best presentation (clarity, technical content) as voted by the Basic Science Committee. What you got to lose ask your tutor about attending. Turn up, learn, have fun and have a go for that £250.
