Recognising that women are traditionally under-represented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) studies and the related professions, Ford is delighted to announce that the winner of the Ford Prize for Women in STEM Study 2016 is Laura Thurgood, who is about to start her second year of a Biochemistry degree at Liverpool John Moores University.
In association with the Ford PWN (Professional Women’s Network) this is the third year that the prize has been awarded in order to recognise the achievements of women in STEM, encouraging other women to become involved.
Runners up prizes have also been awarded to:
• Serena Gough (University of Nottingham)
• Jaime Fowler (Coventry University)
