Yesterday afternoon, our Biology Plus students were given a talk on Immunotherapy by former d’Overbroeck’s student Elena Zanchini. Elena left d’Overbroeck’s three years ago and is about to start her fourth year at the University of Oxford, reading Biochemistry.
During the presentation, her knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject was clear and our students made good use of a question and answer session to quiz Elena on the detail of her study as well as advice on how to apply for Biology-related courses at top universities. Elena is currently applying to study Medicine once she graduates from Oxford next year. You can read more about her time at d’Overbroeck’s and see the Extended Project she researched and wrote-up whilst studying for A levels on her profile here.
