Lily Foundation Visits

Our Upper Sixth Biologists who have just finished studying the biochemistry of respiration were treated to a lecture about mitochondrial disease by a member of the local charity The Lily Foundation. The Lily Foundation is based in Warlingham but is Europe’s leading charity funding research into this debilitating and potentially fatal disease, and has successfully fought for a change in the law to allow treatment of patients through genetic modification.

Our guest speaker was none other than Upper Sixth pupil Isabel R from our partner school Warlingham School, who is a member of The Wright Society. Mr Quinton said how impressive it was to see Isabel speak so confidently to the entire Upper Sixth Biology cohort here at the Caterham.

This is the first step in Caterham Biology and The Wright Society forging a link with The Lily Foundation. Please click here If you would like to know more about mitochondrial disease or the get involved with the work of The Lily Foundation

We wish Isabel R every success in her imminent interviews for a place at medical school.
