Biotechnology Summer School celebrates international collaboration


Summer SchoolTwenty-one students from seventeen different countries were welcomed to the School of Biosciences for a very international Biotechnology Summer School in July.

Over a period of two weeks, the students worked with Dr. Dan Lloyd, Director of the Biotechnology Summer School, to develop advanced practical skills in molecular biology and therapeutic protein production. Their work in developing and characterising an antibody fragment with the potential for diagnosis and treatment of acute myeloid leukaemia was supplemented by research based seminars that featured some of the world-leading research conducted within the School.

The Summer School coincided with the Royal Society‘s #ScienceIsGlobal campaign, highlighting the importance of retaining international collaboration by featuring pictures of internationally diverse research groups.
