Professor Cathy McCrohan's Visit

22 January 2018

On Monday of this week, Professor Cathy McCrohan of the Neuroscience Department at Manchester University visited the school, along with her colleague Myoin Kwok, of the Life Sciences admissions team. 

  • Professor Cathy McCrohan

Professor McCrohan gave a very interesting lecture to the MYP5, DP1 and DP2 Biologists on “How the nose knows!” She explained to the pupils how our sense of smell is detected by the brain, and how the neurones associated with the nose are able to regenerate as well as the fact that the Olfactory System is the only part of the brain that actually extends outside of the skull. Her insightful talk gave the students the most up to date information about medical research. She expanded on the preventative medicine of detecting degenerative diseases through the sense of smell. 

Both Moyin and Professor McCrohan congratulated our pupils on the level and depth of questioning after the lecture. 

Moyin followed the pupils’ questions with a detailed description of some aspects of the admissions process for universities in the UK. She then proceeded to provide specific information about the advantages of some of the biological courses based at Manchester University and possible onward careers.

We look forward to inviting Manchester University Life Sciences Department back again next year!
