    Description

    FBHM (formly FLS) School Community and Faculty Open Days, May 8-9, 2015

    I coordinated with my colleague Elisa Aguilar Martinez to create a fun activity for children and adults, to raise public awareness of the research completed by the Sharrocks Laboratory (based within FBMH, Manchester University) with a focus on gene expression. I was responsible for liaising with companies for corporate sponsorship; helping to create ‘props’ and ‘manning’ the activities stall at the event (which entailed describing the process of transcription to young children, with a focus on getting the idea of DNA - RNA - Protein).
