“What do we need to do to further human health in Scotland?” a collaborative approach!

On the 5th December, a workshop was held for Daphne Jackson Trust Research Fellows at Scottish Universities.

This event was funded by the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance (SULSA) and held at Edinburgh University’s Informatics Forum.

The aim of this workshop was to find collaborative multi-disciplinary ways to address the question;

“What do we need to do to further human health in Scotland?” 

Daphne Jackson Trust’s Fellowship Advisor, Dr Gillian Halket joined Scottish current and former Fellows and said…

“We had lots of inspirational debate on how we could best tackle this issue. Research Sandpits are a fantastic way to collate ideas from across diverse research fields, and find ways to address big challenges.”

This event was organised and facilitated by three current Fellows; Dr Rachel James, Dr Katherine Baxter and Dr Streepriya G.

Thank you to all that participated in this thought-provoking day, and a huge thank you to SULSA for funding this event and discussions.
