Secondary school pupils and sixth form students from Merseyside have taken part in a series of lectures to mark World Aids Day with researchers from the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC).

Hosted by Honorary Graduate and BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Philips, the event included a discussion led by Professor Saye Khoo from Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology who is lead HIV clinician at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen Hospitals NHS Trust.

In addition to the lectures there was 3D artwork on display, created by students from schools across the region which forms part of the BRC project to raise awareness of research into the condition. There was also a question and answer session.
