From the 1 November 2019 the Faculty of Medical Sciences is changing. Three new research institutes support our research activity. They allow us to be responsive to global challenges.

A set of research themes unite researchers from different disciplines. They highlight our specialist knowledge and focus areas.

Find out more about our new research institutes and themes.

This is a blog of the former IGM Public Engagement Committee. It contains information about the events organised by the Committee in 2012-2019.


“Public engagement describes the myriad of ways in which the activity and benefits of higher education and research can be shared with the public. Engagement is by definition a two-way process, involving interaction and listening, with the goal of generating mutual benefit” NCCPE

IMG_0716We are looking for enthusiastic people at the IGM who’d like to get involved in the public engagement projects. If you are excited about science, interested in sharing your knowledge with the general public, inspiring potential students and showing the world that science is not only important but also fun, please get in touch!

Specifically, if you:

  • have organised or are involved in a public engagement project and would like us to publicise it on the Institute website,
  • would like to suggest or organise a public engagement event,
  • would like to get involved in any of the projects and events we are running,

Please get in touch. We’re more than happy to help!
