Rukshikah Loganathan from Croydon
"I was able to develop skills in research, aseptic techniques, and cell culture techniques of pancreatic cancer cells that most first-year students don't normally get the chance to develop.
We had access to facilities such as 3D printing, RF room, prototype room, flow cytometry, cell culturing and splitting, and surgical simulations. We also observed a surgical oncology by Dr Steven Curley, Baylor College of Medicine's chief of oncology.
Meeting leading researchers and surgeons such as Dr Billy Cohn (Vice President for Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies) and Dr Curley was inspiring, and that motivated me to work hard with a view to studying medicine in the future."
