GAMSAT MARCH 2013: Congratulations
Well done to all those who sat the GAMSAT, I have received emails from many students who improved their scores and are now in the application process for medicine! Others didn't do as well as they'd hoped, but have awe-inspiringly picked themselves up and are ready to work out the best way to improve for September or March 2014.

"You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts": The Danger of Science Denial
Did you know that taking herbal supplements and vitamins could just be giving you very expensive wee? That's not necessarily a very dangerous thing in itself. But there are many ways that you could be putting yourself and your family at risk if you don't use science to make your decisions.
Bonnie Bassler on how bacteria "talk"
Did you know that you have 10 times as many bacterial cells in or on your body than human cells?
Bonnie Bassler discovered that bacteria "talk" to each other using a chemical language - molecules are the "words". This language enables the bacteria to coordinate defense and mount attacks.
Green chemistry, also called sustainable chemistry, is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances. Whereas environmental chemistry is the chemistry of the natural environment, and of pollutant chemicals in nature, green chemistry seeks to reduce and prevent pollution at its source.
