Congratulations to Kara Moran, winner of the 2016/17 Inspirefest and Lennox Postgraduate of the Year. Following a number of very competitive applications, Dr Anne Parle-McDermott and Dr Ciarán Fagan had the difficult task of selecting the winner. Kara was chosen based on her excellence in research and contributions to the School of Biotechnology and beyond over the last year.
The award was presented by Joe Mackle from Lennox on Friday. Kara received a €200 cash prize, a certificate of award, and a personalised trophy from Lennox along with a ticket to Inspirefest 2017, an international festival of technology, science, design and the arts with diversity and inclusion at its heart.
Our sincere thanks to Inspirefest and Lennox for their generous sponsorship, and to Anne and Ciarán for their time and effort in judging the competition.
