Have You Thought of a Career in Medical Research?
Outreach Public event
Wednesday, 17 May 2023, 4pm to 5pm
A series of online talks/conversations with scientists from NDS, NDORMS and other University of Oxford Medical Science departments for Y12/13 students.
Even when I was at school I was intrigued by how drugs and medicines work so I took a chance and applied for a brand new degree course in Pharmaceutical sciences. Since then I have been encouraged to take chances and that has helped lead me to where I am today researching Osteoarthritis drugs.
I am a dietitian and my research focuses on testing how behavioural science can change dietary intake and improve outcomes for patients with obesity-related diseases.
A reflection on a career in academic research when you love practical work in the lab, including the career paths that can open up by making connections with people and the trials of trying to write grant applications to fund your research.
