News | UK Biocentre colleague featured on BBC Newsbeat.
We were delighted that our colleague Halima was one of two people supporting NHS Test and Trace to be interviewed by BBC Radio 1 for their Newsbeat programme. Halima talked about her role at UK Biocentre and what it’s like to work as part of the national testing effort. The interview is available to read here.

“Halima works alongside virologists, wearing protective clothes. 

It's her job to unpack the swab tests that have come from hospitals or testing sites, working in a special isolated cabinet. 

She makes sure there's enough of a sample to be tested before it can go through a machine to check for coronavirus. 

Halima applied to work at Milton Keynes Lighthouse Lab after one of her lecturers shared an advert online.”

Hear more about Halima’s experiences in her blog: Contributing to the wellbeing of others.
