Mathew does Pint of Science

posted by Mathew Horrocks   [ updated ]

In order to be able to do our research, we rely on funding from the public, either through taxes or generous charity donations. It's therefore really important to tell people what we do, and the Pint of Science series is an excellent way to do this. As part of this, Mathew presented the work of the Edinburgh Single-Molecule Biophysics Group in the Canon's Gait pub, in Edinburgh. The event was well attended, and there were some fantastic questions. It was also great to hear about the work being done by Benjamin Giblin, a Ph.D. student from the School of Physics.

It was great to attend the first Edinburgh-Dundee Parkinson's Research Symposium. The event was organised by our collaborator, Dr. Tilo Kunath, and brought together those working on Parkinson's disease at the Universities of Edinburgh and Dundee. We also got to hear from those living with Parkinson's, and a talk from Professor Sir Ian Wilmut.

We were pleased to attend the UK DRI launch held at the Royal Society of Edinburgh. The event was a great opportunity to meet researchers in Edinburgh and Scotland as a whole working on dementia. It was also fantastic to speak to others about the techniques that the Edinburgh Single-Molecule Biophysics Group are developing to aid research into neurodegenerative disorders.
