Better Together: The Evidence Behind the Headlines. A Group Consultation Public Engagement Event on Care and Research.
Wednesday 19th June, 13:30-15:30, Baddiley-Clark Seminar room, Baddiley-Clark Building, Newcastle University FREE
The Medical Research Council (MRC) Festival of Medical Research, taking place between 13-23 June 2019, aims to share and celebrate medical research and its contribution to health, the economy and society. Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) is a collaboration between researchers and clinicians at the University of Liverpool, University of Sheffield and Newcastle University, funded by the MRC and Versus Arthritis.
Join CIMA in Newcastle for a chance to see how care is delivered in group consultations and ask questions about healthcare problems including problems with muscles, bones and joints. Group consultations allow a two-way discussion about research, so some of our students, junior scientists and leading researchers will talk briefly in lay terms about their work and how it impacts on your everyday life, including where this might lead to new treatments and what research you might take part in locally for common problems like osteoarthritis.
Talks will include:
- Overview of CIMA and its core aims – John Loughlin, CIMA Director (Newcastle) and Principal Investigator
- Food, exercise and healthy ageing – Ellie Hayes, MRes/PhD student)
- Our genes and our joints – Ellie Parker, Postdoctoral Scientist
- Lab experiments to enhance surgical treatments of arthritis – Tony Sorial, Academic Clinical Fellow
This event is free and refreshments will be provided. Please book using this link: https://forms.ncl.ac.uk/view.php?id=4847629
