Discover Biomedical Careers - Special event with Nowgen

This is a special event offered jointly by the Faculty of Life Sciences at Manchester and Nowgen, a Centre for Genetics in Healthcare. It is hosted at the Nowgen Centre, which offers tailor-made facilities and expert knowledge of contemporary healthcare science careers.

This event differs from the Discover Biomedical Sciences Day due to its emphasis on exploring the range of careers available in the scientific disciplines that support modern healthcare. Participants will learn about study at The University of Manchester and the range of courses available, so priority will be given to learners who have not also attended the Discover Biomedical Sciences Day on 28 June 2010.
