Winston Churchill Fellowships are awarded to research the world’s best ideas, innovations and practices within the field of science and science education. Madeleine will be exploring environmentally sustainable laboratory practices, in the USA and share her findings with scientists and policymakers in the UK.
Many Congratulations to Madeleine!
“My goal is to drastically reduce the volume of non-essential waste sent for incineration, by introducing changes to education, policy and incentivisation. I strongly believe that we need to empower frontline scientists to make positive changes in their own workplaces. I will shape my learnings from the US, and subsequent discussions in the UK, into a series of practical recommendations that can be adopted by scientists. By collaborating directly with researchers and policymakers, we can show that high-quality research and sustainable lab practices are not mutually exclusive.” – Madeleine Iafrate
