Congratulations Ayush Tambde!! Best Individual Project 2023! And to our two 3rd Year Young Scientist Finalists!

NEWS / 14 January 2023

Ayush Tambde, aged 17 and in sixth year in Stratford College won the prize for Best Individual, with his project, 'Analysis of single-cell proteomic data to understand the mechanisms of oncogenic transformation and how to control them'. 

Ayush also won the Horizon Student Award for the best overall Biological and Ecological project.

Contest judge Dr John Monahan said the project had “taken new protein biology approaches to relook at an important existing data set and come up with novel insights into potential treatments for these difficult to treat basal cell breast cancers”. [Irish Times]

See the web gallery 2022-2023 for some visitors to Ayush, and to Liam and Joseph who were Individual Intermediate Technology Category finalists with their respective consumer robotic arm and hybrid Japanese typewriter projects. Tánaiste, Micheál Martin TD took a keen interest in the robotic arm and Japanese typewriter on Friday afternoon. Spot the Japanese typewriter in Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan's video on Twitter.

Our Science teachers and 3rd and TYs visited on Friday! We are so proud of you all! Looking forward to the celebrations! See our social media for all the news.

Congratulations also to his mentor Ms Helen O'Kelly (Computer Science teacher).

Very importantly, thanks to each of our finalists' parents who were there throughout the whole week and made sure the posters, project reports and equipment all arrived safely in the RDS. Thanks too to the Systems Biology Ireland team based in UCD, in particular Dr Oleksii Rukhlenko.
