Karina de Almeida Lins was awarded with a Silver prize in the category biological and biomedical sciences at the national poster competition "Stem for Britain 2024", held at the Houses of Parliament on 4th March 2024.  The poster title was "Improving survival in premature infants: development of anti-biofilm feeding tubes".

STEM for Britain, organised by the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee with support from a number of learned societies including the Royal Society of Biology, is open to early career researchers engaged in scientific, engineering, technological or medical research. Participating researchers have the opportunity to present their work in Parliament to a panel of expert judges, whilst also getting the chance to talk to local MPs about their research and its applications.

Over 100 bioscientists from across the UK applied to take part at the competition, with only 30 being selected to present their posters at the event. Karina was one of the five bioscientists who took home medals this year, and she also had the chance to share her promising research with the Nottingham MP Lilian Greenwood.
