'Both degrees gave real taste of what to expect in the real world, to be organised, work well on my own and as a team.'
I am a clinical Embryologist working at the Birmingham women’s hospital. 2 months after graduating my Toxicology MSc I worked for the University of Birmingham medical school as a Research Associate in the reproductive medicine group. Before my current role I looked after the Birmingham spermbank which I am still involved in. Finally I still hold an honorary Research Associate position at the University of Birmingham.
