Quiz team 2011
Downton Not Too Shabbey

25 November 2011: Horspath Village CF Trust Quiz.

In what has become the highlight of the Oxford social Calendar the GeneMed team attended the Horspath Village CF Trust Quiz.

Seriously hampered by the lack of questions on gene expression analysis, MHRA regulations, Bioinformatics and things you can buy from Life Technologies the team did well to make it into the top half by the end.

However, plaudits were received for the outstanding appearance and attire of the team.

21 November 2011: James Peckham 'Rose of Hope' Charity Bike Ride.

James Peckham from Southampton is cycling 400 miles from London to Edinburgh via Oxford to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. James is visiting each of the UK CF Gene Therapy Consortium's Research Centres on route to deliver a Rose of Hope. James arrived at Imperial College London at 9.20am on Monday 21st November 2011 to deliver his first Rose of Hope to the London research team, which was accepted on the team's behalf by Cystic Fibrosis patient representative, Emma Lake.

From London, James cycled to meet the Oxford research team at the John Radcliffe Hospital. He arrived in Oxford around 4.30pm to deliver the second Rose of Hope. James will spend the rest of the week cycling to Edinburgh and will deliver the final Rose of Hope to the research team at Edinburgh University on the weekend of November 26th/ 27th.
