Andreea Murariu won 2nd place in Queen’s University’s prestigious QGEM Essay Contest

The QGEM is part of Queen’s iGEM team (International Genetically Engineered Machine), who “culture bacteria to re-engineer biology for new applications in medicine, the environment, and more.”

Andreea has been a Brain Power student for many years and recently completed Senior 2 Language Arts — a course that rigorously prepared Andreea’s knockout essay-writing skills!

She thanked Dr. Karine Rashkovsky for direction and support throughout:

Dear Karine, 

I got 2nd place on that essay contest (the one on synthetic biology) I applied to at Queen’s University! Thank you so much for your help on that!

We are all very proud of you, Andreea!
