We've asked Sarah Dixon-Clarke from the UK why she decided to do a DPhil project in the Nuffield Department of Medicine. During her undergraduate degree she undertook a BBSRC summer studentship, which enabled her to get some research experience in a lab.
She is now doing a DPhil in the Structural Genomics Consortium, an NDM unit. She found that the DPhil project on offer and the Department particularly appealling, due to the extensive experience in X-ray crystallography - a technique that she was keen to learn. She thinks Oxford is a beautiful city to live in and really enjoys college life.
