Dr Nicola Stanley-Wall of the Division of Molecular Microbiology has been appointed a School Regional Champion by the BBSRC.
School Regional Champions (SRC) support BBSRC researchers in the UK with public engagement activities for secondary schools and young people aged between 11–19. A network of Regional Champions develop and share best practice, tools and activities to aid the support for these researchers.
As a Regional Champion Nicola will receive funding annually for public engagement activities.
On hearing the news, Nicola said:
“I am delighted to have the outreach work conducted in the Division of Molecular Microbiology recognised by BBSRC and I am looking forward to future engagement events.”
