Surrey student excels at SET Awards
Wednesday 15 October 2008
Andrea Darling from the University of Surrey was one of the three finalists in the Nutrition category at the recent Science, Engineering & Technology Awards Ceremony. This is a fantastic achievement as it is a UK and Ireland wide award and Andrea was the only representative from the University in any of the Science, Engineering or Technology categories.
Her final year project was on ‘Protein and Bone Health: A Meta-Analysis’ and she was supervised by Dr Susan Lanham-New, Reader in Nutrition in the Nutritional Sciences Division. Andrea was really honoured to be at the ceremony representing Surrey and Nutritional Sciences. She comments: “I was so thrilled to be there amongst other finalists in such a prestigious event and I am looking forward to staying in the Division to do my PhD." Andrea has several PhD grant applications shortlisted in the area of nutrition and bone health.
Professor Linda Morgan, Head of Nutritional Sciences within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University, comments: "Andrea’s success was a wonderful achievement for Nutrition at Surrey as the Science, Engineering and Technology Awards are very competitive. We are very proud of her.”
The Science, Engineering & Technology Awards are established as Britain's most important awards for science and engineering undergraduates and are also open to students studying at universities in the Republic of Ireland.
