Undergrad students to work in Germany

As an exciting beginning to the exchange of undergraduate students between University of Plymouth (UoP) and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) in Berlin, two students from the School of Biomedical and Healthcare Sciences (SoBHS) will be spending the Summer at the RKI in the laboratory of Dr Bernhard Ehlers. Based on an established collaborative interaction between Drs Jarvis (UoP) and Ehlers (RKI), Nicholas Lyons and Lucy Davison will be using state-of-the-art molecular techniques to search for viruses in European Badgers. This is a continuation of the research they did for their third year projects supervised by Dr Jarvis.
