By jove ... another fantastic resource available to HYMS staff and students

Have you ever read an article and thought to yourself: ' I'd like to see how that is actually done?"
Well, now you can, the Journal of Visualised Experiments is a unique resource: there are hundreds of recorded experiments and lab tests, supported by high quality videos and images, including supporting articles. Not only does this make replicating experiments easier, but in terms of learning and teaching it is transformative - each article comes with a lovely reference friendly doi link that you can slot straight into your essays or reading lists, if Box of Broadcasts did lab work this would be it! Currently, the folks at JoVE are also running a competition open to MBBS, post-grad and post-doctoral students and faculty ($3k cash prize), all you have to do is create a 2 minute film (we all saw the mannequin challenge we know you've got the directorial skills) of a scientific experiment or technique, if you're interested, JoVE have a competition entry page. So how do we get to this lovely resource, I hear you cry? Well as always we've placed it up on the HYMS Library page JoVE lives in the Image and Videos section, as does Box of Broadcasts if you were wondering what all that was about. We're a curious bunch so let us know what you think of JoVE by contacting us at
