    Dr Neha Agrawal, Bye-Fellow at Murray Edwards College, has been awarded a Borysiewicz Biomedical Sciences Fellowship.

    The Borysiewicz Biomedical Sciences Fellowship takes some of the best Cambridge postdocs and develops them into motivated, strategic future leaders. These postdocs work in teams on projects aimed at finding solutions for some of the world’s most pressing problems.

    Dr Agrawal is a Research Associate at the Gurdon Institute and is currently investigating the genetic basis of obesity to identify and examine novel obesity-causing genes. She is working in collaboration with Professor Sadaf Farooqi at the Institute of Metabolic Science.

    Dr Agrawal has a long-standing and active interest in science education and outreach, and has been involved with various educational organisations and initiatives. She has been interested in a ‘Systems Thinking’ approach in education, which she explored as a Visiting Fellow at the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education, India.

    “The Borysiewicz Fellowship programme provides an exceptional opportunity for me to gain novel insights and perspectives, and develop skills that will significantly benefit both my research and engagement with education.” (Dr Neha Agrawal)
