Free research or resource creation for community organisations8 January 2024Our third year Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience students dedicate 40 days to a research, literature review or scientific outreach project. We want to use these projects to benefit the local community.
Projects will be centred around physiology, pharmacology or neuroscience. They could involve anything around physical and mental health, agrochemical use, drug use or other relevant topics. If you are a community organisation who has a research question, needs data collected or analysed or needs an educational resource created, get in touch.
