Student Information Evening at ACBD

In order to provide prospective students, and the wider community, with a better   understanding of what we do at the ACBD, we have participated in several information sessions as well as hosting our own information nights. A lot of  interest was generated by these students to learn more about blood diseases and haematology. 

    Some of the comments from the students at the Student Information Evening 

  • Very friendly staff, awesome facilities, part of an impressive network of opportunities.
  • State of the art equipment in labs.
  • The presentation was very informative.
  • Everything exceeded my expectations!
