Get involved!

There are all sorts of ways to get involved with what we do in the King’s Muscle Lab.  Below are our current opportunities, but do check back regularly as things change all the time:

  • Write a blog post – email us with an idea of a topic that you’d like to write about, or we can suggest something if you’re short of inspiration but want to share your science writing with the world
  • Be a volunteer for one of our studies – at present we are looking for people who have asthma, eczema or hayfever to participate in a very simple study that involves blowing into some bags
  • Film a study in the lab, and editing the video afterwards – as you can see, we have had research volunteers and Student Panel members produce videos for us, and we’re always after new content.  It will go on the blog and our Facebook and YouTube pages
  • Come and be an extra pair of hands in the lab – this isn’t always an option, as it depends what studies we have running and who is participating in them, but there may be times when you could come and help out, and get some first-hand experience of life as a research scientist as well
  • Helping us write Participant Information Sheets and layperson summaries of research studies, at the beginning and end of projects respectively.  Having a fresh pair of eyes on these documents is always really helpful
  • Post on our Facebook page or tweet us – if you have a burning physiology question, or there’s something that has always puzzled you about how the lungs work, just ask and we will do our best to answer!

  1. Hello, I was highly recommended by one of my friend Sarah (from Harris Academy Peckham) to join this king’s muscle lab as I’m an A-level biology and psychology student. I’m really interested in both biology and psychology and want to pursue a career in biology as a teacher. I believe coming into a programme of this nature will really help me to gain some first hand experience about the world of biology. It would be awesome to here from you !

    Best regards

    • Thank you for getting in touch Mohsin. It’s great that you’re interested in working with us. Can you please email me ( and we can try and take this further. The world certainly needs enthusiastic biology teachers! Dr Vicky MacBean
