The first meeting of the new Pharmacology Public Engagement Committee, which includes academic and research staff as well as students, was held last week. The group had a lively discussion about public engagement activity in the Department, how such activity can be better supported and encouraged within Pharmacology and how members of the committee can act as ambassadors to provide guidance to anyone thinking about engagement. With regard to particular activities, the committee talked about the opportunity for research groups to win an animation about their research produced by Oxford Sparks (apply here); Pharmacology’s plans for IF (the Oxford Science Festival) (see Barbara Zonta if you want to be involved); and opportunities to organise in-house training for anyone thinking about public engagement.
