Bees make for popular research
Kit Prendergast from Curtin U is off to the national Fame-Lab finals (it’s a three-minute thesis sort of thing). The winner there gets to go global, competing in the worlds in the UK. Ms Prendergast studies native bees. Back in UTS scientist Nural Cokcetin was runner-up in the world finals, explaining her research on the antimicrobial and prebiotic properties of honey.
