    Blake Hughes

    Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science

    I first started Medical Laboratory Science with a keen interest in the broad range of subjects offered. This interest only increased when I stepped into the lab. The instruments and facilities available at JCU match those of a real medical laboratory, this helped me go into my placements with confidence and experience.
