Pupils watch US kidney swap from Inverness
Secondary school pupils from across the Highlands witnessed a live kidney transplant via video link from the US last week.
The event was held at Inverness College UHI where more than 70 students had the opportunity to put questions to the surgical team at the Liberty Science Centre of New Jersey.
The close-up surgery was part of Johnson & Johnson’s Bridge to Employment programme, through Inverness-based LifeScan Scotland, to encourage pupils to develop their skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and consider careers in these fields.
