Celebrate Oxfordshire brightest science stars

Eighty young people from 30 Oxfordshire schools have been commended as potential science stars of the future at a special Science Oxford celebration.

Our annual Young Scientists of the Year celebration, run in partnership with the Nuffield Department of Medicine and STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, honours some of the county’s brightest and hard-working A-level students. Year 13 pupils are nominated by their teachers and the nomination can be based on exam results, progress made during their A-level course or in recognition of their enthusiasm and commitment to the subject.

The 2017 celebration was held at the Museum of Natural History in Oxford, where we welcomed the students, their proud parents and teachers with a drinks and canapé reception. This was followed by a series of talks by inspiring scientists – including Sarah Rowland-Jones, Professor of Immunology at the University of Oxford and a world-leading expert on HIV.
