Dr Elizabeth Tunbridge (Department of Psychiatry) has received an award from the Royal Society's new Public Engagement Fund for her project 'Genetics and the Self.'
Dr Elizabeth Tunbridge is collaborating with a local artist to explore the links between genes and our individual personalities, and how science can elucidate them. She plans to use the artwork to open up discussions about the ethical dimensions of mental health research, as well as its implications on wider society. This project is the start of what will hopefully become a longer term partnership, further exploring the wonder and beauty of neuroscience.
