Public engagement at the Gurdon Institute

Our public engagement programme aims to foster exchange between our scientists and the public, provide an insight into our particular research topics, and inspire the next generation of scientists

SeeingCloser drawingsOur activities and events are organised by the Institute's , Dr Hélène Doerflinger. Volunteers are drawn from across the Institute to staff the events, and this participation has become embedded in our research and training culture. In 2015, 20% of our scientists took part in a public engagement event (see list of volunteers below).

Child Gurdon model org StickersWe aim to serve a variety of audiences in terms of age, educational stage, background and location, by running diverse activities and events either on site, through educational or scientific institutions, or in public spaces. Some of our activities are repeated from year to year while others are once-only.
