Fusion Antibodies helps students examine a career in Stratified Medicine

Eighteen students took part in a work experience event sponsored by Fusion Antibodies and hosted by the University of Ulster on 1 and 2 July 2014.

Fusion Antibodies understand that the best way to learn is by experience. That is why, in collaboration with the NI Centre for Stratified Medicine, which is the only one of its kind on the island of Ireland, students got an opportunity to work in laboratories and learn about potential careers in Stratified Medicine.

Stratified medicine is an emerging practice of medicine which looks at large groups of cancer patients to find ways of predicting which treatments cancers are likely to respond to. It involves looking in detail at the cancer cells and their genetic make up. Researchers want to find out if some treatments are more likely to work in cancers that have particular changes to their genes.
