Today’s school pupils are tomorrow’s medical researchers – in just a few years secondary school pupils could be engaged in pioneering laboratory work.

Medical Research Scotland has invited S5 and S6 pupils interested in a career in science or considering studying a STEM subject to its acclaimed Meet the Researcher Showcase in February 2020. Pupils of all abilities are invited to attend the free events

Known to be the most comprehensive medical research careers event in Scotland, the event will allow pupils to meet inspiring young scientists who conduct cutting-edge research into the diagnosis and treatment of disease. They’ll explain the science behind their work and their journey into medical research. The PhD students all study at Scottish universities thanks to funding from Medical Research Scotland.

At the exciting and interactive 2020 event, pupils will meet lecturers from leading Scottish universities and industry leaders who will talk about careers in medical research. They’ll also put their science skills to the test using fun, hands-on science demonstrations provided by experts from the country’s leading research companies and medical science institutions.
