Our researchers explore a wide variety of means to engage different audiences with their research, both to share their own enthusiasm with a general audience, or to make ensure that those who can most directly benefit from our research hear about it and have an opportunity to be involved. The sucess of many of our targetted engagements are detailed in some of our impact case studies and industry case studies.
In this section we bring together more of our current activities targetted at wider audiences.
Welcome Trust arts collaboration
One of our Research Associates, Dr Paddy Brock, is involved in an exciting and innovative public engagement project called Silent Signal.
This is an arts/science collaboration that brings together six artists and six scientists to creatively explore research into genetics, immunology and epidemiology.
We use a number of social media platforms to communicate our research activities.
