CVS PhD student wins Scottish heat of science communications competition

Callam Davidson, a PhD student in the Centre for Cardiovascular Science, University of Edinburgh, has won the Scottish heats of Famelab 2017, the biggest science communications competition in the world, which trains and mentors scientists to share their enthusiasm with the public.

Ten talented science communicators took part in the competition at the National Museum of Scotland.

Entrants have three minutes to explain a science concept in a unique and entertaining way. Callam’s winning project explored the biological implications of stress.

The panel of judges included representatives from four Scottish universities and the Wellcome Trust.

The Scottish heat was coordinated by Heriot-Watt Engage.  Callam now goes on to the UK finals in London - Good luck Callam!
