A previous GRE Honours Project student from the Stark Lab has been shortlisted for the 2011 European Science Engineering and Technology Student of the Year Award. Katarzyna (Kasia) Kozyrska is one of three students to be shortlisted for Biology in this highly competitive transatlantic competition. The Science, Engineering & Technology Student of the Year Awards are Europe’s most important awards for science and engineering undergraduates. The Awards are multidisciplinary, to reflect the wide range of degrees universities now offer and individual awards are made in 18 categories.

Professor Mike Stark who supervised Kasia’s Honours Project said, “I wish Kasia all the best for winning the Award but getting as far as the last three is an achievement in itself.” Professor Stark will be attending the awards ceremony with an audience comprising hundreds of technology students, academics, senior industry executives; as well as senior figures from government, scientific and technical institutions and the media.

The ceremony takes place on the evening of 23rd September 2011 at the Millennium Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London where the winners will be announced.

Luke Kontogiannis was a previous winner from Dundee in 2000 for his work done with David Lilley.
