07 Nov 2014 Dr Aziz Aboobaker From Oxford University Delivers Lectures On Planeria For Students At Newham Collegiate Sixth Form Centre (The NCS) – In Video
Dr. Aziz Aboobaker is a Cambridge graduate who has worked at many top universities including Berkeley and Nottingham. He is currently an associate professor in Genetics at the University of Oxford where he runs his own lab. Dr Aboobaker’s research is based on using planarians (flatworms) as a model system to study cell regeneration and aging.
He spoke to our students about why he works with planarians and how they are an excellent organism to study to learn about ageing. Dr Aboobaker also gave our students a real insight into the application process for Oxford University and advised them how they should start preparing now.
