Inspire and inform the public
Public engagement is a rewarding way for our members to promote the profession and to inspire the next generation of biomedical scientists.
Over the years our members have taken part in activities ranging from inspiring students about careers in biomedical science to an attempt to break a world record.
Getting involved in public engagement activities will develop your teamwork, organisational, communication, problem-solving and leadership skills.
