Public Engagement

We feel passionately about engaging with others about our microbiota research; discussing the impact of our resident friendly bacteria on our everyday lives and also the wider exciting world of science! We do this in a variety of ways including contributing to newspaper/magazine articles, writing blogs, giving public talks, running sessions at science festivals, teaching school children and also discussing career options, and even appearing on the TV. To reach wider audiences we have recently been awarded a public engagement award from the Wellcome Trust (‘me and my micobiome’), so keep an eye out for exciting future events and initiatives.
