CSM Outreach Activity

Outreach 2On the 31st October, the Division of Computational Systems Medicine (CSM), invited 26 students from IntoUniveristy London Brixton branch for an outreach event.

The students, aged between 14 and 17, took part in various activities, from Proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1H NMR) spectroscopy, comparing characteristic spectra of food products and urinary profiles of healthy and diseased individuals, to a laboratory tour, a disease biomarker workshop and a short-course on microbial pathogens, such as Ebola and HIV.

Outreach 3The CSM outreach team, headed by Professor Nigel Gooderham, was organised by academics at various stages of their careers (PhD students, postdocs and lecturers), who subsequently talked about their current roles, as well as academic life at Imperial College and requirements to get into university initially.

Overall, the CMS team enjoyed reaching out and engaging with the students, all of who gave positive feedback, and wishes them all the very best for their future careers.
