Science for Experimentation

Before the event, we invited schools to participate in a research project that would be showcased at the conference in the session Science for Experimentation.

All schools were competing for The Association for Clinical Biochemistry & Laboratory Medicine Trophy for the Don Henderson Award.

The conference featured a diverse range of outstanding presentations, as always.

This year’s recipients of the Don Henderson Award were the students from Highgate Wood School for their project, Are teeth-whitening toothpastes a scam?
