Successful year 12 applicants have the opportunity to participate in laboratory-based work experience and will be given an extended taste of the research environment within the School of Medicine.
Pupils get to experience first-hand a range of cutting edge technologies, working in trios with a number of different investigators and their research groups.

- flow cytometry
- DNA sequencing
- egg microinjection

- cellular immunology.
Pupils learn the important place animal experimentation has in basic biomedical research and in the development of new medical treatments. Pupils also get to meet and spend time with PhD students and post-doctoral fellows, many of whom are in the early stages of their career.
The scheme runs for a four-week period in the months of June and July. Acceptance onto this work experience scheme is competitive. The application form is available to download on our website. The annual closing date for the scheme is 31 March.
