Insight into Pharma / Biotech
This event is particularly for science students who are interested in research within the pharma/biotech industry.
It gives you the opportunity for a half day visit to a local biotech company. You will have a laboratory tour, and the chance to speak to scientists to find out more about what the work is like. It takes place in 9th week – but not in every term, so check the calendar of events on CareerConnect.
