AYS Finalist: Liangzhan Sun - Hard work and dedication does pay off!

AYS Finalist: Liangzhan Sun - Hard work and dedication does pay off!

It was two years ago when I first came across a poster that read "Alltech Young Scientist Competition" while on my way to the reading room. I found it interesting and time was available, so I decided to look into the details. I met Dr. Ao and Miss Luo from Alltech and Dr. Ao's speech was so inspiring that I decided take part in the competition. However, it was my second year in university and I did not yet know how prepare a paper. I asked my physiology teacher for help. She is a reference professor and was my tutor. A few days later, I joined in her group.

When I was in the second year of my undergraduate courses in Brazil, one of my professors asked if anyone was interested in doing a research project with her.

I was eager to read if I was eligible or not and double clicked on the link provided. I discovered that I was eligible, but what bad timing; the research paper had to be submitted before the 31st of December, exactly 20 more days to write a paper.

AYS Finalist: Nelson Pena - If It Was Possible Despite All

Being a researcher has been one of my most important goals in recent years and the research I did was the key point in deciding on this vocation, which I am so passionate about. Taking part in the Alltech Young Scientist came about because a friend suggested that I participate in the competition the year before. They thought that my research could win the regional competition, but due to fate, I could not participate that year.
