"Spending my placement year with the Frozen Ark Project was an incredibly formative experience for me. I was given the opportunity to plan and carry out my own research project, which is an opportunity not many undergraduate students get, and I was tasked with learning the software that would be used by the charity to create its database. My experiences over the year have put me in an incredibly strong position for my final year. I had an amazing year with an amazing group of people."
"Working with the Frozen Ark Project on my placement year was an invaluable experience. I was able to gain exposure to both lab and office work, which allowed me to develop and apply my knowledge and understanding of different fields of Biology in a practical setting. Designing and completing my research project (among other opportunities) has been a brilliant experience, setting me in good stead for my final year. It was great to be one of the first undergraduate placement students working with the Frozen Ark Project, I look forward to seeing their progress in years to come!"
"I joined The Frozen Ark team in 2017 during an exciting period of the charity’s development and got stuck into a variety of projects. My main task was to organise the Zoological Society of London’s frozen collection, but I was also involved with analysing a national survey of biobanks and public outreach events. As well as learning a huge amount about biobanking itself, it was a wonderful experience to work with such dedicated staff and partners. I have been spreading the word of the Frozen Ark ever since!"
