Late Live: The Horror Within
27 October 2017
Dr Liz Allen received funding from The Royal College of Pathologists' Public Engagement Innovation Grant Scheme. The panel awarded £620 as partial funding to an outreach event at the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield, jointly organised with Museums Sheffield called The Horror Within, an evening of talks and hands on activities exploring parasites and gut pathology. The outreach event is being organised together with Dr Mel Lacey, Dr Sarah Forbes, Kirstie Rawson and other PhD students within the BMRC. PhD student Kirstie Rawson received a £1000 grant from the Microbiology Society towards the Horror Within event.
The grant was awarded for Meet your Microbiome to host a series of mini-lectures and provide a light box filled with agar plates to enable people to explore the microbiological world. The night has a microbiological horror theme and will be discussing everything from diagnostic nightmares to real life zombies. Additionally there will be lots of activities throughout the evening including a live version of Pandemic and Death Drawing.
