NDM is proud to have many successful female scientists in a variety of roles across the Department. To mark this occasion NDM spoke to some of our successful female scientists about their careers and inspiration to become a scientist.
We currently have a large number of postgraduate students studying within Experimental Medicine.
Understanding how an infection spreads is vitally important for prevention. Whole genome sequencing of microorganisms allows us to construct family trees of infections, from donnor to recipients, and understand how microbes behave in general. Through its genetic code, we can also predict whether a germ is susceptible or resistant to a specific antibiotic, and give patients a more stratified and personalised treatment, as explained by Professor Derrick Crook.
The Nuffield Department of Medicine operates unit-based formal mentoring schemes for all externally funded research fellows.
There is a wide range of opportunities in the Experimental Medicine Division.
