"During the second year at university, I learned about the option of undertaking the fourth-year project in industry. Immediately, I thought that it would be an incredible opportunity to develop my laboratory skills and learn about ways of working in an industrial setting. I knew that the placements were very competitive – but I believe extensive laboratory experience provided by the department really helped me secure it and would recommend anyone considering applying for a placement to definitely go for it!

"For my placement I am based at GSK Stevenage working within the Adaptive Immunity Research Unit. The placement involves learning new cell biology and immunology techniques whilst working alongside experienced scientists, as well as being able to attend numerous seminars and undertake useful online courses.

"Despite the current unprecedented public health situation, everyone at GSK is incredibly supportive and helpful, ensuring everyone has a great experience and learns a lot. I look forward to the rest of the year!"
