SciSoc Spotlight

SciSoc Spotlight is a new initiative (set up in Summer 2020) focussed on illuminating the lives of young scientists at the University of Cambridge. These scientists are often PhD students or young post-docs, members of the scientific community who have recently started on their journey. Those who have kindly agreed to be involved detail their research topics and interests and their motivations and provide advice to those seeking to follow down a similar path. We hope their stories help fill in the gap between an undergraduate degree and a Nobel Prize and, more importantly, inspire and help aspiring academics of all ages and every field to pursue their dreams and ambitions.
