Public Engagement is a huge part of our culture in FutureNeuro and all of our researchers and staff contribute to our varied activities.
The vision for our public engagement programme is:
A society that is informed about the impact of neurological disease and supports research to address the challenge.
We work with a range of different groups to help achieve this vision.
Love Your Brain
Love Your Brain is a campaign we are part of, in conjunction with over 20 patient and research organisations. It is timed to coincide with Brain Awareness Week, each March.
Leinster Brain Bee
We are delighted to be hosting and sponsoring the first Leinster Brain Bee on March 23rd 2020. This is a competition to motivate students to learn about the brain and to inspire them to pursue careers in neuroscience, so they can help treat and find cures for brain disorders.
We are delighted to be part of the Cell Explorers family, delivering the Fantastic DNA workshop to primary school children in our area. Schools can contact us to arrange a visit from real scientists, where we turn their classroom into a science lab.
Clinical professional development
Applying our research in real clinical settings is a priority for FutureNeuro. We run a number of events for clinicians that are accredited for continuous professional development points (CPD) from the Royal College of Physicians.
