Careers material and publications

Publications and​ research reports on skills can be accessed from the Resources section of the website. This includes, for example, the publication "A-Z of Medicines Research" that gives detailed information on the state of current medical research in the UK. This would be a good source of background reading and pre-interview research for students considering further studies or a career in the biomedical sciences.
