Rising Stars public engagement training

From Mar 28, 2017 10:00 AM to Mar 28, 2017 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 new Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre - CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Jeffrey Cheah Bimedical Centre is now complete and home to the Cambridge Immunology Network Coordinator.


‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
