An online event where school students connect with 25 MRC-funded researchers and support staff. It’s a competition between scientists, where students are the judges, and part of the MRC Festival of Medical Research 2018.
Students challenge the scientists and support staff over fast-paced online text-based live CHATs. They ASK the scientists anything they want, and VOTE for their favourite person to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.
The event runs 4th–29th June 2018
