Manal’s research has been entered into the Biomedical Sciences section of the competition. She will be presenting a research poster on her investigation into the genetic basis of Salmonella Dublin disease in humans. The poster will be judged against dozens of other research findings in the only national competition of its kind.
Speaking about the opportunity, Manal said: “I am very happy that I have been shortlisted to present my research work in Parliament. I have been to several national and international scientific conferences but presenting my research to MPs is a great opportunity that I am looking forward to.”
Stephen Metcalfe, MP and Chairman of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, said: “This annual competition is an important date in the parliamentary calendar because it gives MPs an opportunity to speak to a wide range of the country’s best young researchers.
“These early career engineers, mathematicians and scientists are the architects of our future and STEM for BRITAIN is the politicians’ best opportunity to meet them and understand their work.”
STEM for BRITAIN is a poster competition held at the House of Commons which involves early career researchers whose work is judged by professional and academic experts. Each session of the competition results in the award of Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates.
