The group of year 9 and 10 pupils spent a day in ISTM’s laboratories at the Guy Hilton Research Centre and had the opportunity to participate in a range of activities related to the innovative work that is carried out at ISTM. These activities were led by post-graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and academics who demonstrated equipment and laboratory techniques with the aim of sharing our knowledge about stem cells; biomaterials; regenerative medicine; bioreactor technology; nanotechnology; magnetics; and cancer research.

With our school outreach programme and our passion for medical research we are hoping to communicate our work to new learners and the wider community, as well as to inspire more students to take up study in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects.
