Research projects are a major part of the coursework for Chemical Engineering students in their fourth year at Cambridge, leading to the MEng degree. On 26 February 2010, half of the class gave their presentations with the other half presenting on 2 March.

The prize winners on 26 February were Rosemary Anthony and Chrissie Rowan for their project on The Rheology of Commercial Thickeners Used in Treating Dysphagia and Their Flow Through "The Cambridge Throat" and Naomi Jones for Optical detection of cancerous tissue.

The winners on 2 March were Peter Roth and Christina Karapataki for their project on The Cambridge Disk Microreactor and Vincent Lister and Claire Lucas for Dynamic gauging of membrane surfaces.

Rosemary and Chrissie's project looked at the rheology of some specially thickened fluids that are prescribed to patients with some types of dysphagia (swallowing disorder) and how the rheology affects the flow through the throat. They designed and built a model "throat" in which to test the fluids.
