King’s College London biologist wins Science Communication Award

Anita Montagna, a neuroscience PhD student from the Division of Imaging & Biomedical Engineering, King’s College London has won a Science Communication Award from the Royal Society of Biology.

Held annually, the Society’s awards are intended to reward science engagement work carried out by research scientists in order to inform and inspire the public.

The New Researcher Prize of £750 was awarded to Anita Montagna, from Pesaro, Italy, for her outreach work with children and the design of an innovative new MRI scanner model.

Anita said: “I feel honoured. This award is an important acknowledgement of my and other researchers’ efforts. Science is for everybody and the award makes me feel that society recognises and rewards the energy I have put in to engaging the public and communicating my research. It is a genuine reward but it is also a push for me and all my colleagues to keep going.”

About the Award
Each year the Graduate School awards Supervisory Excellence Awards (SEA) designed to recognize and reward postgraduate supervisors for the outstanding supervision and support that they offer to research students at King’s College London. The key criteria in selecting winners from the nominees are that they demonstrate innovation in their thinking or practice and that they support the personal development of their students towards their chosen career goal. We also expect to see evidence that the supervisor has ‘gone the extra mile’ for their students.
