Brian Mackenwells

Public Engagement Coordinator

I am seconded to this role for two days per week, whilst the post holder (Naomi Gibson) is on secondment in the Social Sciences Divisional Office.

I am responsible for supporting researchers across the Medical Sciences Division to engage non-academic, primarily public, audiences with their research. This includes:

  • Supporting the development of large / strategic funding proposals for Public Engagement with Research activities
  • Building capacity for public engagement within the division, through the provision of training and a PER Seed Fund 
  • Supporting the development and delivery of Divisional engagement activities, such as European Researchers Night

I am also Public Engagement Officer in the Wellcome Trust for Human Genetics, supporting researchers to engage with public audiences.
