The overall aim of the Quantitative Biomedicine Programme’s public engagement work is to engage a variety of audiences in considering, questioning and debating the key issues in quantitative biomedicine, including the molecular, technical and implications for society.
On the 29th of June 2017 the WQBP teamed up with Pecha-Kucha Coventry to run a science themed evening - "Life's Fragile Patterns". Researchers from across the Medical School and School of Life Sciences presented their work to the public in a 20x20 format at The Tin in Coventry's Canal Basin. Guest speakers included Jane Mellor (University of Oxford), Oded Rechavi (Tel Aviv University) and Ferenc Mueller (University of Birmingham).
