In this session, Dr Janine Wilkinson, Lecturer in Biomedicine in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia, will discuss the type of work a medical research scientist will carry out, the diseases they will study, and the techniques they will employ on a day-to-day basis as part of their research role.
Students will gain an invaluable insight into what a laboratory is like to work in and the importance of the ground-breaking work that is being performed by medical research scientists.
Janine will also talk about the importance of publishing papers and why scientists spend a substantial proportion of their time writing, providing examples of papers and how they go towards building our knowledge of a disease and how this progresses therapies.
