Coming up in June is the MRC Festival. The annual festival showcases medical research and how it can benefit society, while building trust and improving understanding among the public.
The MRC Centre for Transplantation is taking part this year and has launched a competition aimed at students in King’s Widening Participation Network. To enter, students must answer the question: "What is the lifecycle of a clinical trial - from idea to patient treatment?"
Entries can be a poem, letter, song or rap, diagram, artwork or collage, 30 sec video or any other form which communicates the answer.
The competitin is now open and closes on Monday 8 May. Six winners will be chosen and notified by Friday 12 May. Winning entries will be displayed in the atrium at Guy’s Hospital as part of International Clinical Trials Day, which is on 20 May.
Competition winners will be treated to a VIP day at the MRC Centre of transplantation which will include:
- Access to our labs and able to use state of the art equipment
- Ability to conduct experiments alongside international researchers
- Information about the career paths in science
- Ability to work with transplant patients and an artist to create the MRC Centre for Transplantation's 10 year anniversary centrepiece.
