Issue 108

Research Outreach continues to showcase research from a broad range of institutions around the globe. In this issue, we are excited to celebrate some of the pioneers driving the latest discoveries and innovations in research.

In this issue of Research Outreach, we feature researchers working across a variety of disciplines. The common thread is that all are united by their passion and enthusiasm for rigorous research.

The UK Dementia Research Institute aims to unite researchers, clinicians and scientists in the battle against this little understood range of conditions. We speak to Director of Scientific Affairs, Giovanna Lalli, who tells us more about UK DRI’s mission to lead multidisciplinary research, not only into Alzheimer’s but the spectrum of neurodegenerative conditions causing dementia.

The brainchild of Shane McCracken, I’m a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here, connects scientists directly with schools to help young people engage with STEM subjects and social sciences. We find out more about Shane’s mission to address the issue of young people lacking in ‘science capital’, the concept that a broad exposure to science through various channels contributes to a feeling in young people that science is for ‘people like me’.

We’re excited to feature such an extraordinary array of topics for you to delve into.
