PhD Experience

PhD taster session @ Cambridge Science Festival

We invited a small group of GCSE and A Level students to experience what life is like as a PhD student in Cambridge. The visit was led by Alise, Stan and Julia, who are current PhD students at the Stem Cell Institute.

We were delighted to offer the group, who are already passionate about science, an exclusive, 'behind the scenes' glimpse of the Institute. The visit included some hands-on work in the lab as well as more theoretical tasks to reflect the reality of leading a research project.

Thank you to those who attended - we found it inspiring to meet tomorrow's researchers and hope you did too!

"After yesterday's experience, I am more determined to explore science in the lab - discovering state-of-the-art biotechnology!"
