      My first experiment (out side of college) in a laboratory was detecting if some human cells we were growing (from a particular human disease) contained a specific protein we had engineered them to express. I was fantastic fun and i had to learn lots of new things to do this.

      I don’t remember, probably something with a ruler and some string – but my first research project was “Why do Ducks never get wet”, in high babies or 1st class!!

      It’s hard to remember, but I think it was testing to see if salmonella or e-coli were in some food samples!
