S4-S6: THE WORLD'S VIRTUAL CAREERS FAIR - INCLUDING "BECOMING A COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGIST"

Check out Eduvate’s Virtual Careers Fair which hosts a range of podcasts and interviews from employers and universities. Hear from employers directly what they are looking for in an ideal candidate, and explore career avenues you may not know even know existed!

This week they are highlighting a rather topical lecture by the University of London on ‘Curing Disease’ - Becoming a Computational Biologist. Dr Adrian Shepherd’s research group works on immune responses to several viruses that have a major global impact on human health. He uses computational biology to discover and map virus behaviours and to generate statistics in order to detect possible routes to developing a cure for such viruses.  In this lecture, you will learn about the methods used in biology against influenza as an example, and what is ahead for biologists of the future.
