BT Young Scientists Award


The Chair referred to a recent achievement by Oran Timoney from Castlederg who attends Holy Cross College in Strabane.  He stated that the pupil had won a special award for ‘Project with the Best Impact on Human Health’ from the Royal College of Surgeons for his work entitled ‘categorising cardiovascular disease patient risk using machine learning tools’, at the BT Young Scientists Awards held recently in Dublin.  He proposed that the Committee write a letter of congratulations and contact the Mayor’s Office to request consideration of a reception to acknowledge the award.
