Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Zoom Video Conferencing, Online, Online

Join CIMR Director Professor Julian Rayner and five researchers as they give their perspectives on life at CIMR, and delve into the world of proteins and cells – and what happens when genetics or infections result in disease. Expect insights into lab work, find out what researchers spend their time doing day to day and ask them questions!

The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) is a biomedical research Institute that is part of the School of Clinical Medicine at the University of Cambridge. CIMR’s mission is to determine the molecular mechanisms of disease to advance human health. We focus on translation between biological research and clinical applications. The Institute has 24 research teams studying how normal biological processes inside cells can go wrong during infections, or because of rare genetic changes. By understanding these processes and the molecules involved (particularly proteins) we aim to discover better treatments for diseases and enable better outcomes for patients.

Together with The CIMR’s director, Professor Julian Rayner, five early career researchers and PhD students give their own perspectives of life at CIMR, delving into the world of proteins and cells – and what happens when genetics or infections result in disease. Expect insights into lab work, find out what researchers spend their time doing day-to-day, and ask them questions! This online, interactive event is aimed at a general audience but may be especially useful for secondary school students who are curious about biomedical research as a future career or study option.
