4 December – what’s the story behind door number four?

Food for thought – how accurate are our bathroom scales!

In March physiology experts in the Division of Medical Sciences and Graduate Medicine helped BBC TV’s The One Show solve a domestic mystery – how accurate are our bathroom scales? Dr Beth Phillips agreed to help presenter Dominic Littlewood investigate five different, newly bought domestic bathroom scales, along with three keen and sporty students from the University’s Muscle and Athletic Sports Society. Dominic came to Beth’s lab at the Royal Derby Hospital to film the report.

Who opened the door?

A big thank you to evolutionary geneticist Angus Davison, from the School of Life Sciences, for opening door number four of our digital advent calendar. If you have been watching the news lately you might recognise Angus. He will feature later on in our review of 2016.
