Microbiologists exploreJo Leeson
Students who attend the Microbiology PDA session were invited to attend a workshop at the University of York Microbiology department. This was a fantastic opportunity for the PDA students to work in the university labs with the PHD students. Our Microbiologist enthusiasts learnt correct aseptic technique and then carried out a range of practical’s linked to ‘unearthing’ new antibiotics from soil bacteria.
Miss Cooper, PDA session teacher, accompanied the students and said “We were invited along with two other schools, our students were exemplary, a real credit to the school, they immersed themselves thoroughly and confidently in the whole experience and interacted fabulously in the Q & A session. Thank you to the University of York for the invitation and the fantastic insight into the research which you are working on”.
