This week, several members of BCHC attended a ceremony in Buckingham Palace to receive the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for pioneering work in parasitology. Queen Camilla presented the award and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak also praised the prize winners.

The prestigious award recognises the work of scientists in the Department of Life Sciences here at Aberystwyth University. In particular, the research of BCHC members on Schistosomiasis and Fasciolosis was specifically acknowledged.
