Nuffield Research Placement

Giving A-Level students experience of life in the lab

In our second year taking part in the Nuffield Research Placement scheme, the Smith lab welcomed A-level student, Maddie, for a 4-week project in the lab.

 

 

Maddie conducted a real investigation to help work out how the levels of activity of the gene NR5A1 affect the behaviour of mouse embryonic stem cells. Special thanks to Yaoyao, Nick, Tuzer and Carla from the Smith group for making her experience so valuable.

 

"You've all been incredibly generous (and patient) to explain lots of the science to me considering my very basic starting knowledge. I've really enjoyed working with you and maybe will one day meet some of you in the field when I'm a post-graduate? Thank you!"
