Problems with Pathogens 

Pathogens can have a huge impact from a cellular to an ecosystem level. In this masterclass we will consider the consequences the spread of infectious pathogens can have at different scales and the important role vaccines have in controlling infectious disease. We will also explore the importance of critical thinking and the scientific method in the context of the current global health crisis. This masterclass is for those interested in Microbiology, Biomedical Science, or with an interest in the science of disease, human or otherwise.

Our Virtual Outreach

During the unprecedented times of social distancing, our team remain on hand to support you. Over the coming weeks, we are ensuring there is something for everyone, whether you’re a future student, teacher or adviser. We’ve got you.

 All our virtual outreach activities on offer have been developed to inform and motivate participants, and link to the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Career Guidance. This report was redefined and published in January 2018. Laying out eight benchmarks, the report outlined good practice within careers guidance and an expectation that all secondary schools have a careers plan.

 Our online Masterclasses meet benchmarks 4 & 7 (Linking curriculum learning to careers & Encounters with further and higher education).
