Public Engagement

Our vibrant engagement programme provides opportunities for researchers to convey their work to the public and for the public to find out what we do. In 2013 Dr Jane Haley, the Edinburgh Neuroscience Coordinator, was awarded the British Neuroscience Association Award for the Public Understanding of Neuroscience, making this an award-winning engagement programme!
