Science Insights

Celebrating five years of Science Insights

In 2019, for the first time, we invited previous participants, Science Insights Alumni 2014 – 2018, to return for a reunion event in June, as part of our programme of events for the MRC Festival of Medical Research 2019.

The SI Alumni were joined by some of the researchers that have previously volunteered to partner pupils during Science Insights weeks, for an afternoon of tea, treats and talks.

It was wonderful to meet some Science Insights alumni and hear how they are getting on. Many have gone on to study science nationwide. They shared stories about how the programme helped them make career choices, while scientists from the IGMM, MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine and the Roslin Institute shared their stories, describing how their research has progressed over the past 5 years. 

Reconnecting and sharing Science Insights stories provided everyone with new insights and helped to develop of the programme.
