Education at the NICB

The NICB is committed to education, and through its research programmes, to opening access to public understanding of biotechnology, and to contribute to education for all levels and ages. We provide places for second-level transition year students, for undergraduate student summer placements, for secondary school teacher summer research experience, and we provide courses for undergraduate students and for the public. NICB is, of course, heavily involved in training MSc and PhD post graduate research schedules.

Make sure you check out our video-recorded lecture series. You will find a range of interesting talks on biomedical topics, suitable for non-scientists and scientists alike.
