To mark British Science Week (13th – 22nd March), BU celebrated excellent examples of research taking place all across the university. On Monday 16th March & Tuesday 17th March, students and staff were able to participate in a range of hands on science activities run by BU’s academics, postgraduates and student societies at the Science Tent. This included fingerprinting activities, face recognition and eye tracking activities, and even opportunities to participate in current research projects.
An excellent two days of activities was made even better as short talks were held from BU academics featured in the Bournemouth Research Chronicle which was also launched to coincide with British Science Week. Some of the talks included:
- Carrie Hodges and Wendy Cutts: Seen but Seldom Heard
- Jane Murphy: Improving nutrition in cancer survivors
- Andy Mullineux: Making banking fairer for the public
- Peter Thomas and Sarah Thomas: Reduce fatigue in MS
- Kevin McGhee: The genetics of psychiatric disorders
- Emili Balaguer-Ballester: Mapping auditory processing
