At the end of 2017 the first of a new series of Interdepartmental Medical Sciences Graduate events took place, organised by former and current graduate student representatives from a number of different departments in the Division.

Chaitra Sathyaprakash and Paola Barbagallo (Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience), James Bae (Pharmacology), and Eduard Willms (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics) wanted to create an opportunity for MedSci graduates to interact and socialise, so decided to organise this inaugural event.

One of the key discussions focussed on a subject  relevant to all graduate students: “Where should I go next?”. Dr. Adriana Gambardella (Immunocore scientist) and Professor Humphrey Rang (author of Rang & Dale’s Pharmacology) gave some interesting and useful insights during their talks about the  different and varied career options for graduate students.

The event was very successful and both the Medical Sciences Division and the organising students look forward to the next. The next event will discuss fraud and reproducibility in science. More information will be announced soon!

If you’re interested in getting involved with organisation, or have questions or suggestions please get in touch with Eduard Willms (eduard.willms@new.ox.ac.uk) or Paola Barbagallo (paola.barbagallo@ndcn.ox.ac.uk).
