UK Young Scientists scoop third prize on the European stage

Earlier this year we reported the success of Ameeta and Aneeta Kumar, who won the UK Young Scientists of the Year 2014 following their four-week placement with Professor Ruth Muschel, Dr Thomas Tapmeier and Ms Kamila Hussien of the Cancer Research UK and Medical Research Council Oxford Insitute for Radiation Oncology.

We are delighted to report now that they have gone on to take third prize at the 26th European Union Contest for Young Scientists which was held in Warsaw from 19-24 September 2014.  The girls shared a prize of 3500 Euros.

The budding scientists from Abbey School in Reading won out against competition from 77 projects which were carried out in 36 countries.  An amazing achievement, we're delighted to have been the hosts for their work.
