My placement at Biocompatibles

Georgia Fleet
BSc (Hons) Pharmaceutical and Chemical Sciences

“My experience as R&D Technician at Biocompatibles is heavily lab-based and the confidence I’ve gained in carrying out experimental work and reporting my findings to an industry standard has been significant.
