Jon Howe manages the Microscopy Facility at the LMB

Jon Howe [BSc(Hons) Medical Biochemistry, 2005; PhD (Biochemistry), 2009]  is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the prestigious Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, where he has particular responsibility for running the light microscopy service. His work includes development of novel imaging techniques.

Jon spoke about his work at the 2013 CABS seminar series. As well as discussing his present role, Jon gave some very helpful advice about doing a PhD.

A slidecast of Jonathan’s talk is available below.

A recording of the talk (17 mins) is also available

“I found this talk incredibly interesting. I was already aware that some graduates went on to further study and research after the BSc., but I did not know very much about what that actually involved or what the career path would be like. After this talk I have become much more interested in exploring the option of applying for a Masters or PhD. The speaker gave lots of useful advice about what qualities are needed for research, including determination to finish long projects. He also suggested undertaking a summer internship and choosing a lab-based project for the final year of the degree.”
Isobel, first year Medical Physiology
