Oluwaseun Ogundele

Seun worked as a Scientific Research Assistant in Stem Cell technology at Cambridge University after achieving top grades in A Level Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Extended Project

She went on to study Biochemistry at King’s College London – leaving with a First Class Honours degree.

As well as carrying out vital research for Wellcome – MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute as part of her work, the former Eastbury School student applied to study a PhD at Cambridge University during her spare time.

After starting her job in Stem Cell research, she launched and became the driving force behind a social media campaign to inspire young black females to enter and apply for STEM positions in institutions like Oxbridge.

The campaign was in collaboration with and funded by the University of Cambridge and was promoted on Seun’s Instagram page seuninscience and #blackgirlinscience

Seun often returns to the Sixth Form to speak to current students and give presentations about careers in STEM industries. She also gave an inspiring speech at the college’s awards evening.
