MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit


This free, widening participation programme for Cambridgeshire-based Year 12 students (16+) took place from 14-17 February (half-term) at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) and MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit (MBU), in association with St Catharine's College, Cambridge.

Eleven students were involved in the programme, two were hosted in MBU laboratories and nine in CIMR, with seminars and other group tutorials scheduled during the three day laboratory element. On the Friday, St Catharine’s College hosted our visitors, giving them an idea of University and college life, advising on University applications and facilitating mentoring sessions. Scientists and coordinators of the programme were invited to a final seminar, where the students presented their work.
