Two Queen Mary undergraduates present their research in the Houses of Parliament
Tianna Jordan and Hana El-Sbahi were chosen to represent Queen Mary at the Posters in Parliament event in the Palace of Westminster.
Inspired by the US equivalent, Posters on the Hill, this event gives policy makers and legislators the chance to discuss innovations in undergraduate research from across the UK. Together with 41 undergraduates from over 20 UK Universities, Tianna and Hana presented their work to members of Parliament, dignitaries, and their peers.
Tianna, a third-year psychology student in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, talked about her research into the effects of religious involvement and its importance on moral judgments. Hana, a third-year medical student from Barts and London School of Medicine and Dentistry, talked about a research project she completed as part of her Intercalated Degree in Medical Education, which explored the use of distance learning in Syria.
Posters in Parliament is a precursor to the British Conference of Undergraduate Research which this year took place at Sheffield University on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 April, at which 39 students from all three faculties at Queen Mary presented their research.
