Discover Biosciences – Wednesday, 17 July and Thursday, 18 July (same content on both days)

On this day you will find out more about the Bioscience related degrees at Manchester, the types of career available to you as a graduate of these courses, and the cutting-edge research going on right now in our labs.

Registration for this event is now closed.

My degree opened the door to my career and gave me a broad understanding of ecology which has formed the basis of my subsequent professional development. I would recommend Manchester for the city atmosphere, social life and for working with leading scientists.

Biosciences include diverse degree programmes, including neuroscience, biochemistry and physiology, and this day is designed to give you a taste of just a few of the different subject areas you could study if you choose a degree in this field.

At the start of the day you will be given an insight into the range of degree programmes we offer, then you will attend four different laboratory workshops and you will get a further taste of undergraduate teaching by attending a short lecture in the afternoon from a leading researcher.

Workshops include:

  • Cell detectives – a bioimaging workshop
  • Protein Biochemistry workshop
  • Using the fruit fly Drosophila to learn about the nervous system: what goes wrong during aging and neurodegenerative diseases
  • Sheep brain dissection

There will be two Discover Biosciences days. They will contain the same content therefore students should only attend one of these days.
