Many congratulations to VitDAL postdoc Iris Mair for her recent public engagement award at the Centre of Inflammation Research away day. Iris was awarded the trainee prize for public engagement 2015-2017 and is shown in photo receiving prize from Dr Donald Davidson who leads the public engagement programme at the Centre of Inflammation. The award is a great recognition of Iris’ commitment to public engagement and advancing understanding of our work in the wider community. Public engagement activities are an integral part of the VitDAL activities so we were delighted that Iris’ work was recognised by her colleagues. Well done Iris!!
