Gold Crest Award for Abi Barbour

Congratulations to Year 13 student, Abi Barbour, who received her Gold Crest Award as part of her Nuffield Research Placement.  

She spent five weeks during the summer holidays working in a laboratory at the Open University in Milton Keynes.

Abi's project was about the targeted radiotherapy with DNA binding metal complexes bound to gold nanoparticles.  

Abi now has a new found enthusiasm for chemical analysis as she had access to up to date Nuclear Magnetic Resonance machines.
