Winners UKCGG Essay Prize 2018

We had some excellent entries in the CGG Essay Prize this year, entitled "Will Artificial Intelligence Eventually Replace Cancer Geneticists"


Huge congratulations to all our winners:




Overall Winner and First Prize Medical Student Category  - Olivia Greatbatch

Olivia said "I am currently in my second year of medicine at University College London, and so am in the process of deciding which intercalated BSc I wish to pursue. Given just how topical the future of artificial intelligence is across all medical specialities, it is an area which I have recently been trying to learn more about. Since both oncology and genetics are options that I am considering for intercalation, I felt that the essay competition would be a great way to gain an appreciation of what a career in these two fields may entail in the future, whilst also exploring my own interests."
