Video looking at public involvement in our research

Engagement in the School of Medicine is an embedded aspect of academic work that plays a vital role in enhancing the School’s core activity of research, education and training.

Engagement activity generates dialogue and trust between research and society, ensuring the results of our work reach out beyond the usual environments of academia, business and government.

It inspires the next generation of talent and broadens and informs public attitude, enhances the quality, relevance and impact of the research we do and contributes to the future economy and well-being of society.
