Experience research into brain tumours hands-on

Our 2017 Lab Experience is now open! Are you aged 16-17 and interested in lab research? If so, we'd love to hear from you.

For the last couple of years The Brain Tumour Charity has worked with Dr David Michod to run lab experiences for those interested in pursuing a research career. It's a fantastic opportunity to get hands-on with science, learn basic lab techniques and understand more about the incredible world of research. In fact, a lab experience was the very thing that triggered Dr Michod's appetite for research!

“The placement has definitely given me an idea of what it is like to work in a real research lab, and I am so excited to go to university and hopefully continue my education to have a career like this one day!"

Emily, former work experience student
