The Centre for Research in Primary and Community Care (CRIPACC) at the University of Hertfordshire hosted five Nuffield Foundation research placements between July and August 2015. Nuffield Foundation placements are awarded to gifted and talented students who have just finished their AS levels and are interested in pursuing careers in STEMM subjects. The placement allows the student to undertake an independent research project lasting between 4 - 6 weeks, supported by a designated supervisor or supervisory team.

We would like to say congratulations to Nuffield placement student, Marium, for reaching the National Science + Engineering Competition finals! Marium's research project explored the delivery of nutrition information for people with Type 2 diabetes in community pharmacies. For more information about her time in the department, check out her blog post here. Marium will present her research at the competition finals held at The Big Bang Fair 2016.
