To make science accessible, clear, concise communication is essential. The Antibody Society thus offers our student and post-doctoral fellow members a chance to grow this skill through a Science Writing Competition. Entrants submitted essays of 1200 – 1500 words on a topic related to antibody research that were evaluated by our panel of judges. Our two winners are:
Dr. Monica Fernández-Quintero, University of Innsbruck, Austria
Matthew Thomas, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
We also selected one entrant for honorable mention, in recognition of their creative writing and bold use of a literary style:
Dr. Finn Wolfreys, University of California, San Francisco, USA
Essay title: A Short Biography of Antibodies
Their essays can be accessed via the links above. Winners will be offered an opportunity to give a short talk on their essay topic in a Society webinar, and they also receive free registration to one meeting we co-promote, as listed on our Upcoming Meetings page, or a meeting that we organize.
