Video: Max Perutz Science Writing Award 2012
The MRC developed the Max Perutz Science Writing Award 15 years ago to encourage MRC-funded scientists to communicate their research to a wider audience.
MRC Fellow Dr Andrew Bastawrous was announced as the winner at this year’s awards ceremony on 12 September 2012. During the event we spoke to the shortlisted writers about their experience of entering this year’s competition. We also spoke to judges, Dr Jenny Rohn and Sir John Savill, who both urged MRC early-career researchers to take part next year.
