Boat Race crew makes final preparations

NDM MScR Student Karl Hudspith is featured in the video release ahead of the upcoming Oxford-Cambridge annual boatrace this Saturday 7th April, 2012.

His research interest is the Next Generation Sequencing and Sequence Capture for Molecular Diagnosis of Inherited Retinal Degenerative Diseases under the supervision of Dr Jenny Taylor and Professor Ioannis Ragoussis.

The video is the sixth in the series and features interviews with members of the crew in which they discuss how they prepare for the experience of the race itself. Also interviewed are former Blues and Olympic gold medallists Matthew Pinsent and Andy Triggs Hodge, as well as Paul Davies, executive producer at BBC Sport, who discusses the challenges of filming the race.

‘Something out of the ordinary is always quite nice to see,’ Mr Davies said.
