On 16th June 2018 PhD students from the Sapkota Lab, Theresa Tachie-Menson and Luke Fulcher, talked about their research to the members of the public during the MRC Science Festival. Please contact us if you want to know more!


PhD student from the Sapkota Lab, Luke Fulcher, talks to Hazel Lambert about his motivation and aspirations in “Exploring new territory”

As part of our efforts to communicate our research with the public, the MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit and the School of Life Sciences undertake many activities throughout the year in which the members of the Sapkota Lab actively participate.

This Video narrated by Brian Cox explains in lay terms the type of research we broadly do at the MRC PPU.

Additionally, in order to encourgae young high school students to take up Science subjects and consider medical research as a future career path, the Sapkota laboratory offers one or two S3 or S4 pupils every year the chance of a week-long work experience within the lab. Please contact Gopal Sapkota if you wish your child or student (in S3/S4) to undertake work experience. Most high schools in Dundee already participate in similar week-long work experience schemes.
