Posters in Parliament

London Metropolitan University has launched a project for Promoting and Disseminating Undergraduate student Research (PADUR)

London Metropolitan University has launched a project for Promoting and Disseminating Undergraduate Student Research (PADUR). This is a University-wide initiative with participants from every faculty of the University, led by undergraduate research project module leaders and supported by CELT.

A significant part of the initiative involves participating in external undergraduate research events, the main one being Posters in Parliament (PiP) which is organised by the British Conference of Undergraduate Research. The event brings together undergraduate students from selected UK universities, to present their original research. It is a great opportunity for students to share research and ideas with those from other universities across the UK.

This year Youssef Itani (supervisor Dr Nicholas Chatterton) from BSc Chemistry was selected by the PADUR panel to represent London Met with his project titled ‘Using Nanotechnology to Fabricate an Ultra-Sensitive Ammonia Sensor’.

Youssef was a worthy contender and was shortlisted for the top five posters, losing out to the University of Aberdeen and Oxford University. Our Vice Chancellor, Professor John Raftery, was at the Houses of Parliament event on Tuesday 10 February, with Youssef and Dr Sundus Tewfik.
