In a year like no other, it is more important than ever to appreciate the positives. Although 2020 looked different than we were expecting, it was still a year to celebrate: our many wonderful new team members, the incredible outputs of our research team, the PPIE events that bring us back to our central purpose, and the charity events we have participated in to raise awareness about the rare conditions we research.

I started medical school at the University of Liverpool in 2016 and have just completed my fourth year of training. I knew I wanted to intercalate from the beginning but had always battled with what course I wanted to do. After a small compulsory research module during 2nd and 3rd year supervised by Dr Louise Oni, I found I had a real interest in paediatric research and fell in love with Alder Hey. I wanted to carry on with a similar research theme and decided to undertake an MPhil in Child Health with Dr Oni as my supervisor.
