The fields of science research are varied and diverse and becoming increasingly global and collaborative. In this issue of Research Outreach, we feature researchers from across the globe including Europe, the US, Australia and Japan. We also speak to some of the people at the forefront of ensuring that the face of research truly reflects the society it serves.
The Women in Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology (WE@RIT) programme was initiated by Professor of Mechanical Engineering Margaret Bailey in 2003. Since then, it has become a bastion of support for female students in an academic field that remains even now, vastly male-dominated. Dr Bailey shares her experiences of leading the programme and her hopes for the future.
Global non-profit Iridescent challenges the negative myths surrounding AI and uses technology to inspire underserved children to become innovators. We speak to founder and CEO Tara Chklovski, discussing how Iridescent’s goals have become a reality.
We hope you enjoy this issue of Research Outreach – we’ve certainly enjoyed putting it together.

Across the globe, a wealth of valuable research is conducted every day. Sadly though, this vital work isn’t always visible to the public.
Dr Donna Nelson of the American Chemical Society has made it her mission to change the public perception and appreciation of science. Whether that is as a leading figure
in the research community or as scientific advisor to Breaking Bad, Dr Nelson’s commitment to increased awareness of the value of science is clear.
As Chair of the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), Dr Suzanne Jackson champions a public health perspective on important public policy discussions that impact the health and well-being of Canadians. She talks to us about the institution and highlights the key challenges to come in the future.
Professor Mike Meredith is tackling a significant global challenge head on: science leader at the British Antarctic Survey, he investigates the role oceans play in slowing climate change by absorbing carbon and heat. A key tool for his work? The underwater vessel named Boaty McBoatface by the British public.
Covering work from researchers in fields as diverse as Physical Sciences, Health & Medicine, Earth & Environment and Biology, we’re sure this issue of Research Outreach has something to interest everyone.
Research covers so many diverse areas. From fertility, cancer treatments and hearing damage to gender equity in the green economy, the range of subjects featured in this issue of Research Outreach is testament to the diversity of work being conducted by researchers around the world.
We also hear from two Thought Leaders within Health research who share their insights with us.
Professor Rhian Touyz is the Director of the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences (ICAMS) at the University of Glasgow. She discusses the institute’s goal with us, outlining the vital research conducted there and the vision for the future.
The European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) aims to raise awareness and improve prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care of cancer patients. Birgit Beger, CEO of ECCO, outlines the role of the organisation, its influence so far and, more importantly, the future of cancer care.
With such a varied array of subject to choose from, we hope you enjoy learning more about the extraordinary work of the researchers we feature.
There are many overlaps between the fields of Health & Medicine and Biology. In this issue of Research Outreach, we feature researchers and hear from Thought Leaders across both disciplines.
Dr Maryrose Franko, Executive Director of the Health Research Alliance explains why popularising research is so important and why the organisation puts people at the heart of its policies. Dr Philip Hieter, President of the Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences (CSMB), emphasises the importance of advocacy and education for securing funding and support.
Canadian Blood Services’ CEO Dr Graham Sher explains the story behind the non-profit charitable organisation’s mission to effectively manage the bloody supply for Canadians. The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) promotes eye health through advocacy, knowledge and partnerships. CEO Peter Ackland discusses their mission and the importance of World Sight Day.
In addition to our Thought Leaders, you will find this issue packed full of fascinating research from Health & Medicine and Biology. Join our global readership and dive straight in to find out more!
For those not immersed in it every day, the world of research can seem dauntingly distant. At Research Outreach, we are committed to closing that gap. We want to open up the research community so that readers around the world can understand the value of the work being carried out in diverse subject areas.
Whether you are interested in Physical Sciences, Education & Training, Engineering & Technology or Biology, this issue of Research Outreach will have plenty to interest you. In addition to detailed articles on research projects, we also hear from the scientists themselves, to gain an insight into the people behind the research.
We speak to Professor Laurent Keller from the European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) about all things evolution as well as his experience as president of the society. The ESEB has approximately 1,400 members who it supports through a networking platform, conferences, funding and two journals.
It was a pleasure to work on this issue and we hope that you enjoy reading it.
