Dr Seint Lwin, a postdoctoral researcher in Dr James Edwards's group at NDORMS has been selected to present her science to Parliament, as part of the 2015 SET for Britain competition on 9 March.

Seint is working on how diet manipulation affects ageing, cancer, and skeletal health. On presenting her science in Parliament, she said: "I am excited to be able to share our work at this wonderful event, promoting the breadth and depth of scientific research across the UK. Our work highlights how simple dietary modifications may produce substantial health benefits, and I look forward to the opportunity to network with other scientists and build bridges across different scientific disciplines."

The overall aim of SET for Britain is to encourage, support and promote Britain's early-stage and early-career researchers who are key to the UK’s continued progress in and development of R&D.

Researchers are shortlisted from hundreds of applicants to appear in Parliament and judged by leading academics against dozens of other peers in the only national competition of its kind.

Seint’s research has been entered into the Biological and Biomedical Sciences session of the competition, which will end in a gold, silver and bronze prize-giving ceremony. The gold medalist receives £3,000, while silver and bronze receive £2,000 and £1,000 respectively.
