Public Engagement and Media
Engaging with the Public
Our scientists are regularly involved in a wide range of activities to communicate our research to the public, inspire them with the science we do, and involve them in the way we carry out research.
Our scientists love showing primary school children how MRI works and giving them a chance to make up their own experiments to do on our scanners.
We regularly go out into secondary schools to speak about neuroscience and invite secondary school students into the lab to find out what neuroscience research is really like.
Museums and Festivals
Our scientists regularly attend science fairs and put on exhibitions at local museums.
Patient Group and Public Involvement
Consulting with the public about our research is an essential part of the science we do.
The Creative Brain
Bringing together people from a wide range of disciplines, providing a forum to provoke thought and dialogue about how our understanding of neuroscience can impact on all aspects of our lives, and how insights from other fields can enrich our study of neuroscience.
Public Engagement Ambassadors
FMRIB and OHBA have appointed six Public Engagement Ambassadors to lead and develop public engagement activities in the lab.
