Research Invitation

As a medical student, the topic of organ donation is one that has been discussed a few times during my education. However, I would like to explore if it is the same for students studying other courses and investigate whether sciences-based students and arts-based students are likely to have a differing understanding and opinions of organ donation. Since English law changed in May 2020 to an opt-out rather than opt-in system and that there are currently, 5972 people awaiting a transplant in the UK, the topic seems as important as ever.

I am looking for participants to complete an anonymous, online questionnaire to investigate students current understanding of organ donation (i.e. what can be donated and who can donate). Additionally, I am exploring scenarios around life-sustaining treatments and investigations necessary for successful transplants and if this is ethically acceptable to participants.

This has been approved by the BSREC ethics committee.

If you would like to take part, then please read the information leaflet attached to this email. Alternatively, please use the link below to access the cover sheet and questionnaire:

inVISIBLE Research & Diversity Conference

The Warwick Black Chemistry Society (WBCS) in collaboration with the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) would like to invite you to attend and/or present at the inVISIBLE Research & Diversity ConferenceLink opens in a new window at the Zeeman Building.  The conference is part of an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion project (inVISIBLELink opens in a new window) aimed at promoting the visibility of ethnic minorities in academia.
 
The conference will feature two days of research talks and posters by ethnic minority researchers (8th & 15th July) as well as one day of diversity-based talks (13th) to highlight projects targeted at addressing inequality gaps within academia. By reserving research talks for ethnic minority researchers, it is our aim to provide a dedicated platform for them to share their research contributions and feel celebrated in environments where they are often underrepresented.
 
On 8th July, we will be joined by two fantastic keynote speakers: Prof Robert Mokaya (University of Nottingham) and Prof Kalwant Bhopal (University of Birmingham). Prof Mokaya is currently UK's only black Chemistry professor and his contributions to the chemical sciences have seen him awarded a UK OBE. Prof Bhopal is an acclaimed author tackling racial gaps in Higher Education and her work was used to develop the Race Equality Charter mark.
 
Registration to attend and/or present is available hereLink opens in a new window and is open till 31/05/2022.
We look forward to seeing you there and for any further questions, please visit: go.warwick.ac.uk/invisible_conference or contact wbcs@warwick.ac.uk

The Computational Toolkit: HetSys Student-Led Seminar Series

The series includes a programme of talks focussing on key computational skills which are used in everyday research and will feature talks from HetSys PhD students as well as guests from other centres and organisations.

The aim of this series is to create a "computational toolkit" of resources and tutorials, aimed at helping those just beginning in the field, and offering a more practical introduction to computational science as a whole. It will cover a range of topics relevant to someone who’s just taking an interest in computational science as a whole, or a programming tool, but will also include talks on more complex tools.

See flyer here

The website is here: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/hetsys/outreach/toolkit/ and has details of the upcoming talks.

The series kicks off on the 1st February at 4pm, and will run weekly at that time via YouTube Live.
