We are committed to the pursuit of academic excellence and, through our research, positively impacting the health and wellbeing of people around the world. We are also committed to reaching out to the wider community through public engagement activities and initiatives. This increasingly important part of medical research enables us to build stronger relationships with schools, community, business, alumni and families.
The societal and economic impact of medical research is an integral part of our research, and we are dedicated to supporting our researchers in actively engaging with the public.
Through public engagement, we deliver a range of activities aimed at sharing research and information with the public. It is an exchange of knowledge, allowing researchers to meet with the wider community. It enables us to interact, listen and learn about who might benefit from our work, and how our research might meet the needs of society. It is also a way of encouraging people to take an active interest in what we are doing on a local and global scale.
