You asked, we answered

Our researchers and undergraduate interns have been hard at work! They have been filming and editing videos to answer the top 25 questions that primary school learners have sent us.

Primary school learners asked us about bacteria, viruses, our project and careers. We have researchers from the School of Biology at the University of St Andrews (and beyond) busy filming their answers.
