Y12s welcome Professor Phil Ingham to the Innovation Labs

During Thursday morning this week (20th), I am delighted to announce that we have Professor Phil Ingham visiting the UTC Innovation Labs. Take a look at his guest Blog, from a few weeks ago. Phil will be meeting staff and Y12 students during the lab class on Thursday morning. 

Phil has made major discoveries in the field of developmental biology, using genetic methods and model organisms ranging from Drosophila to Zebra Fish, to dissect the molecular and cellular pathways that underpin the fundamental steps in development. 

Let me know if you want to meet him, otherwise I will show him round the lab as we begin to extract genomic DNA from Synechocystis, and test its suitability for PCR with primers targeted to a specific set of photosynthetic genes.
