The Gurdon Institute

Our Sixth Form workshops are sponsored by the University's Widening Participation scheme with the aim to inspire A-level biology students.

State schools from across the country can bring groups of Year 12 biology students to the Institute to learn about our research.

The visit includes a mini tour of our facilities, a seminar about the history of science and the future of cancer research (by Dr Bernhard Strauss, a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute), and a hands-on workshop where students can test their skills at identifying cancerous tissue with microscopes.

During the visit, students also have a chance to talk to our students and staff about their careers and ask questions.
