Engagement case study: Dr Emma Yhnell
22 November 2016
Dr Emma Yhnell, a Research Fellow, discusses the importance of engagement to her work.
Dr Yhnell's work focuses on Huntington's disease, a hereditary brain condition affecting movement and thinking.
"Public engagement and involvement in science research is absolutely vital" said Dr Yhnell. "Increasing awareness and understanding of Huntington’s disease is something that I am particularly passionate about as this is a relatively rare but devastating disease."
