Name: Adam Carlton

Achievement: Biomedical Sciences

Year of leaving school: 2011

I left Canon Lee in 2011 and went on to do A levels at York College. This led me to The University of Sheffield where I completed my undergraduate and Masters Degree in Biomedical Science. I am now doing my PhD investigating the role of a specific protein in hearing loss, working for the charity ‘action on hearing loss’. It could ultimately lead to new treatments to prevent age-related and noise-induced hearing loss. This tells you more about my research:

My project is due to end next year, and I’m hoping to secure a postdoctoral contract upon its completion.
