Work experience: life in the lab

Gurdon Institute labs host students for work experience lasting up to one week, to get the inside track on life as a biomedical researcher


18 students were hosted by different labs, met our scientists and discovered more about the techniques we use.


At least 16 students (from Years 8 to 12), mostly from local Cambridgeshire schools, spent between one day and one week shadowing a member of the scientific staff in one group. 


Six school students spent either 4 or 5 days working in a lab and one student experienced the busy admin office and stores.
