I came to Salford from India to study Analytical Bioscience & Drug Design. I learnt a lot at the University which I can’t forget throughout my life - the education is really good, with friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful tutors. I made very good relationships with all the staff and made very good friends. All the modules are very interesting and you will learn a wide range of new techniques.
I am now working at the Medical Research Council undertaking human nutrition research in Cambridge. We are developing biomarkers in nutrition related diseases under the Cambridge Lipidomics Biomarker Research Initiative.
