Lab Olympics

10 August 2016

The Whitaker lab at UCL will be staging a 'Lab Olympics' event to coincide with the 2016 Olympic games.

Cancer researchers, health care workers, students and fundraisers alike are invited to join  them to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. This is a great opportunity to test your laboratory skills - strength, speed, accuracy and determination will all be put to the test in a formidable battle of pipette-shooting, gelgripping, weight guesstimation and even a race to dress up in our super fashionable PPE!
