Biomedical Sciences

I have thoroughly enjoyed studying Biomedical Sciences at Lincoln College, Oxford, thanks to its very friendly and homely atmosphere. I feel (at Lincoln) there is a close knit community involving all years groups and even post-graduate students, more so than other colleges. This is partly due to the numerous College events taking place each term; Open Mic Night, Subject Dinner and JCR Drawing Sessions have been my highlights of Michaelmas term. I also particularly enjoyed being part of the Ball Committee which successfully put together a ‘New Orleans’ themed Ball last summer. Furthermore, as the (out-going) 1427 President, I organised Parents’ events for families of Lincoln to get a taste of our life here, and the Finalists’ BBQ as a last farewell and congratulations on finishing Finals! I have also been lucky enough to receive a £300 scholarship from College for achieving a First in my Second year, as well as the 2027 Medical Award, a £500 Grant that enabled me to spend 8 weeks at a laboratory in University College London last summer investigating the pathological consequences of mutations affecting the mitochondrial Ca2+ uptake pathway. Not only has this been invaluable for my final year of study, but it has also opened up many opportunities for Post-Graduate study for which I am very grateful.
