Presenting at conferences and winning prizes
When did I do my BMedSci?
I studied for my BMedSci in 2010-2011.
My project involved looking at the role of a specific signalling molecule in head and neck cancer. Working on this project enabled me to meet new people and develop my time management and writing skills. Initially I was apprehensive, but I really enjoyed the year and I am glad I made the decision to do a BMedSci.
Presentations and honours
My research gave me the chance to present my work at the PER/IADR conference in Finland. From this I won the Junior Colgate prize which has given me the fantastic opportunity to go to Seattle in February 2013.
What I gained from this year
Overall I found the year very beneficial and I have learnt many transferable skills which have come in useful during the BDS course. It is a really worthwhile year.
