STP 2021 entry - Cancer GenomicsWatch
I thought I would open up a (early) discussion about the 2021 entry into the STP, specifically the cancer genomics programme.
If there is any advice anyone can give, it would be greatly appreciated!
I have a 2:2 in Biological Sciences, and an MSc in Cancer Biology and Therapeutics (distinction).
I have 2 years experience working at the NHS 111 service, talking to and dealing with a variety of patients (mental health, palliative care, cancer patients, etc).
I have 5 months experience in an NHS laboratory (blood and transplant testing lab) and am currently working in the University research labs.
I also have other minor experiences which may be useful, such as president of a sports club at University and team leader experience.
I understand this is an extremely competitive programme to be accepted on to, so any advice on what I can do between now and when the applications open would be very helpful!
Looking forward to any tips!
Need more help on going postgrad?
I currently work at an nhs genetics lab, I have a 2.1 in biochemistry and a merit in molecular genetics.
I applied in 2016 and got an interview but sadly didn’t score high enough.
I’m hoping now with more experience I can get Place for 2021.
