HSRU Research Showcased at Soapbox Science Aberdeen

HSRU Research Showcased at Soapbox Science Aberdeen

The Soapbox Science event is coming to Aberdeen for the first time as part of the University of Aberdeen's May Festival 2018, and we are looking forward to hearing about HSRU's research as part of the event.

Soapbox Science is a novel public engagement platform that aims to promote women in science, and the research that they do. The first Soapbox Science event took place in London in 2011, and the outreach event has grown since then; this year there are events going on across the UK, Canada, the US, Germany, Sweden and Tanzania.

Last year one of HSRU’s PhD students, Heidi Gardner, took part in the Soapbox Science Edinburgh event as a speaker, and this year she’s worked with Dr Heather Morgan and Dr Heather Doran to bring the event further north.

The line-up of 12 speakers also includes our own Beatriz Goulao from the HSRU Stats team, and she will be presenting on the topic of clinical trial statistics with a talk titled, ‘Stats is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get’.

Alongside Beatriz, we’ll hear from scientists from the University of Aberdeen and the University of Dundee, on topics including how the city of Aberdeen was made, how we might be able to use the deeper layers of skin to identify people, and how we can learn lessons from flat worms that might one day enable humans to re-grow limbs. The full list of speakers is listed below – for more details head to the Soapbox Science website
