Wellcome Trust And New Scientist Essay Competition 2008
Postgraduate student Justin Gregg has taken third prize in the Wellcome Trust and New Scientist essay competition 2008. The annual competition invites postgraduates and postdoctoral researchers in science, engineering or technology to tell the world about their research. The competition encourages researchers to communicate their science and to explore the possible implications of their work for society. The judges look for interesting, creative and fresh approaches, in a style that would appeal to readers of New Scientist magazine. Gregg’s winning essay, titled “Dolphins get the point”, describes his research involving dolphin social cognition, and can be viewed along with the other winning essays on the Wellcome trust website.
