Graffiti boards

Liz Dowler writing on graffiti boardsAt every Ideas Café we put up boards where people are encouraged to answer a series of questions related to the theme of the café, in this case Science and Technology for Health. You can read below participants' answers to the questions, which were posed by the speakers.

    • This is a very poorly funded area for medical research
    • The challenge to Warwick:

    Are there any major omissions in the themes and underpinning capabilities identified so far?

    Collaborative culture is evident.

      We age from the time we are conceived...
      • We never truly age – our body is constantly making new cells, right?!
      • NHS – National Happiness Service.

      What are our unique selling points?
