Let’s talk about animal research

lets talkAt InterSci we believe that interdisciplinary science and public engagement are key to scientific innovation – but how do you engage with the public when your research involves animals?

Come along to our event on Wednesday 15th November to discuss how to engage with the public when talking about animal research, bring along controversial questions you wouldn’t know how to answer if asked during a presentation and learn tips and tricks about how to talk about your research confidently.

The panel discussion will be followed by small group sessions where scientists working in animal research can discuss how they would approach more difficult questions specific to their research.
