» GPU at HeSAS Research Units Fayre

The Faculty of Health, Sport and Science had a successful Research Units Fayre day on the 8th of June. GPU members enjoyed the opportunity to ‘show off’ their work.

Dr Rachel Iredale gave an interesting talk on the National DNA Database on Trail project. In front of the GPU stall, Professor Maggie Kirk so proudly talked about GPU’s history, currently projects going on in the unit, publications, recent Communicating Healthcare award, and many more. The audience were impressed by their marvellous work.

» GPU Lords it!

The work of the GPU is getting something of an airing at the House of Lords. Two weeks ago, the GAMY project was mentioned during the hearing of the House of Lords Science and Technology Sub Committee on Genomic Medicine, as an excellent example of work going on to engage young people in genetics. Last week, Prof Maggie Kirk was invited to give evidence to the same committee later in November. The evidence submitted by Maggie and myself from the NHS National Genetics Education and Development Centre Nursing Team, has been ‘read with interest’ and their lordships would like to hear more.
