Activities and resources for schools and their students
Have you thought of a career in Medical Research?
NDORMS is hosting a series of online talks/conversations with scientists from NDORMS and other University of Oxford Medical Science departments for Y12/13 students. These will be a mix of information about both the scientists careers and their research work with plenty of time for Q&As on either.
These talks are a joint initiative between two departments in the Oxford University Medical Sciences Division (NDORMS and NDS)
Talks will be run as a zoom webinar and each session with three researchers takes 45-60minutes. If you would like to attend the talks please sign up using the links below. A link to the recording of the talks will be posted here after it happens
Wednesday 6 April 4pm
Sara Danielli - From physics to biology and all the way to England. My road to medical science
My career path from secondary school to a doctorate in medical science. How I picked the wrong university and masters experience for me. How I got lucky, entered the University of Oxford and never looked back.
Dr Sevasti Zervou - Follow your heart
As I was preparing for the final years of school, I hoped to study medicine. It wasn't long before I realised that I had a true passion for biology and I would even go to the other side of Europe if I had to, in order to achieve my goal! Currently, I teach Biochemistry undergraduates and I research ways to boost energy in the heart, so that it copes when it needs to work harder.
