Pembroke undergraduate, Jonathan Brammeld, awarded the Ayres-Evans Prize

6th August 2019

Congratulations to current undergraduate student, Jonathan Brammeld (Medicine, 2016) who was recently awarded the Ayres-Evans Prize 2019! The prize, worth around £250, was established to commemorate Miss K.A. Ayres and is open to undergraduates reading Medicine or Physiological Sciences. Candidates submit an essay of up to 3,000 words on a choice of topics decided by the Tutors in medicine. Essays are submitted under a pseudonym. 

Jonathan submitted his essay, titled ‘What limits should we place on human gene therapy?’ in which he argued for the cautiously enthusiastic pursuit of germ-line gene therapy dictated by both clinical need and the safety of the current best-available technology.

On winning the prize, Jonathan commented: ‘I am honoured to receive the Ayres-Evans Prize, thank you!’

The Ayres-Evans Prize is advertised in Michaelmas Term and awarded in Hilary.
