Discover Biology Research at LifeArc!
Welcome to our programme! We are so excited to have you here.
LifeArc started out as MRC Technology, commercialising scientific research funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), and today we are a leading U.K. medical research charity. We are self-funding, using our investment portfolio to support our charitable activities. We partner and work with academics, industry, charities and patient groups to unlock the potential of early-stage science.
During this programme, you will get the opportunity to step into the shoes of a LifeArc team member and complete tasks that replicate the work that our Biology Research team does every day. You’ll learn how to optimise experimental conditions, analyse data to determine optimal conditions, synthesise evidence and collaboration and present your results.
We hope this programme provides a great resource for you to upskill and strengthen your resume as you explore career options and a potential career at LifeArc!
This program is self-paced. It takes approximately 4-6.5 hours to complete.
