Department of Biomedical Science – Dr Louise Robson

Louise’s Robson is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Science.

Her research looks at Cystic Fibroses – an area where treatment is currently limited. Louise looks to identify novel drugs that could prove beneficial in the long term to treatment of patients 

On the subject of teaching, Louise said:

“One of the things I have always tried to do is use new and innovative ways to deliver sessions to students, principally to strengthen their understanding of physiology but also to develop their transferable skills.

I use a mixture of traditional approaches such as lectures and project work, together with and alternative approaches such as online quizzes, problem solving sessions and lecture capture to deliver modules and sessions. 

I am always looking to embed digital technologies to not only teach but provide academic and pastoral support to students as well.  I am also very active in outreach work, delivering sessions in Science Week every year and talking at the Royal Institution in London.  As an enthusiastic teacher I aim to really grab student attention, ensuring I equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed after they graduate.”
