    I'm trying to get some with a Biomed degree... if you figure it out let me know

    Email a uni/research centre and try asking them could you volunteer or even watch some studies/lab work. I did see one at a cancer research lab advertised on a volunteer website so maybe try your local one for ideas. (That one I saw was a once-off and they said I could do it... but they moved it from Aberdeen to Cardiff, and if I could travel then the position was mine - I was so mad, so close :rolleyes: )
