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

Jack Joyce - From a Yorkshire pudding factory to healthy eating…. Or the science of how to influence people 

My path to medical research was not straightforward: I really struggled deciding what to do after college, my university course was cancelled two weeks before it started, and I ended up working in a Yorkshire pudding factory! I’m now a doctor researching the ways that we can change people’s behaviour to help them lose weight. I will talk about the twists and turns on my path to medical research and how I went from working in a Yorkshire pudding factory to helping people eat healthily.
