18 Jul 6th former wins Nuffield Bursary
Congratulations to one of our year 12 students, Hassan Abdulrahim, for successfully gaining a place on the Nuffield Research Placement. This scheme offers the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists and contribute to their research. Hassan is working with Imperial College London at Hammersmith Hospital on how the drug Metformin, used to treat diabetes mellitus, has shown positive effects at reducing cancer growth in breast cells. Hassan studies Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Psychology at Chelsea Academy Sixth Form and is hoping to study medicine in the future. He will gain many skills on this placement that will assist in his application to university.
