Alex said: “I am absolutely thrilled to have won first place in the SciComm competition and would like to thank everyone involved in the organisation and judging. The video was a lot of fun to make, and I’m delighted to think it is being enjoyed by others as well! Hopefully my video will help people to understand viruses a little better and all the cool things they are able to do.”  School of Life Sciences students Bryony Barnes and Catherine Baker came second and third (respectively) in the written competition.
