I think it’s time for me to introduce you to another #reallifescientist! I usually showcase PhD students or STEM professionals later on in their careers but I think it is about time I changed that to include scientists who haven’t even started a PhD and earlier for a completely different perspective on science careers. Today […]Read More Scientist in the Spotlight. Connor R.
What are you passionate about? I am really passionate about breaking down the barriers between scientists and the public and inspiring everyone to always be curious and embrace their inner scientist.

Standard things to be honest, which got me thinking about some […]Read More Scientist in the Spotlight. Rachel S.

Being a scientist is not just one thing! This is the advice I keep sharing across my social media platforms and when I do science talks to try and break down the stereotypes associated with being a scientist and also to try and inspire the younger generation to get involved in STEM (that’s science, technology, […]Read More Guest blog: Making the jump from the lab bench to a career in MedComms
