Emma Stuart, Salter's Prize winner

Third year undergraduate Emma Stuart has won one of this year’s prestigious Salter’s prizes.

She impressed judges in two interviews at The Salters’ Institute in London to win a £1,000 prize: “They were interested in my scientific knowledge and also wanted to know what I planned to do after my degree,” she explains.

Emma is looking forward to starting her PhD in Electrochemistry in autumn 2011. “I’ve always been interested in Chemistry right from school because research is so fast-moving, there’s always something new to learn.”

The Salters’ Institute of Industrial Chemistry was founded in 1918 to help young chemistry students returning from the First World War to complete their studies. It now supports chemistry teaching, encourages young people to pursue careers in the UK chemical industries and promotes chemical education.
