Biology and Chemistry students travelled to the European Molecular Biology Laboratory

On Friday 13 December 2019 twenty four Biology and Chemistry students travelled to the European Molecular Biology Laboratory near Cambridge to visit the internationally-renowned Genome Centre.  The students attended a lecture by Dame Janet Thornton, a Senior EMBL Research Scientist, entitled ‘Ageing and disease – what’s the link?’, where they learned about current research into theories of ageing, the role of computational biology, and experienced a scientific conference first-hand.  The students toured the impressive campus and saw laboratory work in action.  An excellent ‘speed-dating’ session allowed them to meet and question four scientists about their career paths and their current research; an interactive display introduced them to burgeoning field of careers in genetic counselling.  All in all an inspiring experience, giving the students a chance to imagine their own futures in science.
