Young Researcher's Competition 2008
The Radiochemistry Group's Young Researcher's Competition has been won by Nicholas Lloyd of the University of Leicester for his talked entitled 'The Fate of Depleted Uranium Contamination in the Colonie Environmental Case Study'. He thus received a cheque for £150 and the honour of having his name added to those of previous recipients on the coveted trophy, a bust of Marie Curie, which will remain in his possession until the next meeting in 2010.
The winner will also be funded by the RCG to present his research at an appropriate scientific conference. Unusually, two runners-up prizes were awarded of £75 to John Woodcraft of GE Healthcare and Jonathan Burnett of AWE, as both gave excellent presentations that the judges were unable to separate.
All the talks were again of an extremely high quality, and the judges look forward to the standard being maintained in 2010.
