Letizia Lo Faro - Post-doctoral Research Scientist within the Ploeg Transplant Research group at NDS
Jack Joyce - 'From a Yorkshire pudding factory to healthy eating…. Or the science of how to influence people'
My path to medical research was not straightforward: I really struggled deciding what to do after college, my university course was cancelled two weeks before it started, and I ended up working in a Yorkshire pudding factory! I’m now a doctor researching the ways that we can change people’s behaviour to help them lose weight. I will talk about the twists and turns on my path to medical research and how I went from working in a Yorkshire pudding factory to helping people eat healthily.
India Brough - DPhil student, The Kennedy Institute Of Rheumatology
