SIXTH form students learned about careers in science at a BRC-supported event at Oxford’s Churchill Hospital.
Youngsters from seven Oxfordshire schools visited the University of Oxford’s Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism for the “Is Science For Me?” event.
They had the opportunity to speak to clinicians, researchers and scientists and tour laboratory facilities on Wednesday October 14.
The visitors were from Oxford’s Cheney School, Matthew Arnold School, Oxford Spires Academy and Cherwell School; Woodstock’s The Marlborough School; Abingdon’s John Mason School and Banbury’s Blessed George Napier Catholic School and Sixth Form Specialist Sports College.
The day was supported by BRC along with the Society For Endocrinology and the Oxford Academic Health Science Network.
The centre is part of the University’s Radcliffe Department of Medicine and is a pioneering centre which combines clinical care, research and education in diabetes, endocrine and metabolic diseases.
By promoting world-class research, it aims to enhance understanding of these diseases and to accelerate the search for new treatments and cures.
