Core to the mission of the Wellcome-Warwick Quantitative Biomedicine Programme (QBP) has been our commitment to public engagement. Since our launch we always encourage our researchers to share their work with the public as part of a wide range of different activities.
Researchers at the University of Warwick were invited to enter the Cellfie Gallery photography competition to truly highlight the beauty that can sometimes be hidden within our own research.
The photographs were displayed online and at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire where the public were invited to vote on them.
The winning image, and other entries, are available to view online, and are also displayed on the rear wall of the Medical School Café.
We were thrilled to be part of the annual New Scientist Live in 2018! Over four days the exhibition attracted over 22,000 people from across the UK to London's ExCel Centre.
We ran a range of activities aimed at telling the public about the role of Kinesins and Microtubules - including producing dedicated animations to show them in action, as well as 3D models, games and another activities.
From 10 -13 September 2019 the University of Warwick was host to the British Science Festival, with over 100 talks, activities and performances.
A number of QBP project where represented as part of talks, panels and stands through the festival and as part of the University's Family Day that took place afterwards.
