Rising Stars public engagement training Mar 28, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PM
Would you like to share your research more widely? The Rising Stars course offers training in public engagement and educational outreach for postgraduates, post-docs and early career academics at the University of Cambridge. The course takes participants through the steps involved in planning, organising and delivering an interactive public engagement activity. By ‘public engagement’ or ‘outreach’, we mean engaging ‘non-specialists’ with your academic discipline. This might include school pupils, older people’s groups, youth clubs and the general public (it does not include other academics). You might engage people through, for example, workshops, discussions, hands-on demonstrations or re-enactments. We are particularly keen for participants to offer unusual, engaging activities rather than straight-forward talks.

The innate immune system is known to be instrumental in directing adaptive immune system to eradicate pathogens and tumours. However, dysregulation of the innate immune system can lead to unwanted inflammatory responses that precipitate immune-mediated diseases, including autoimmunity and allergy, suggesting it has a central role in host defences and inflammation.
