I am committed to engaging students with the field of cell biology. I give 11 lectures to 1st year students on the Molecules to Cells course. I set up the second year Cell Biology Research Skills Module practical course. Lisa Swanton and I deliver two weeks of this practical in which students have the chance to learn how to use research-quality fluorescence microscopes to investigate protein localisation within the cell. This practical gives the students the opportunity to design, carry out and interpret their own experiments in order to determine the localisation of an unknown green fluorescent protein chimera that they are given.
