Anna Hodgson

Whilst carrying out the MRes I was able to gain a place on a 4-year PhD programme in Cardiovascular Science funded by the British Heart Foundation in Glasgow. 

The project-focused structure of the MRes really enabled me to develop as an independent scientist, taking responsibility for and controlling the trajectory of my own research. This meant that I was able to succinctly and effectively explain my research and its relevance both in PhD interviews and other scientific environments.
