Dr Dervila Glynn awarded BNA 2017 Public Engagement of Neuroscience award.

Dervila Glynn, Coordinator of Cambridge Neuroscience, was awarded the British Neuroscience Association 2017 Public Engagement of Neuroscience award for her extensive contribution in designing, funding and organising the highly successful Cambridge BRAINFest, held in June 2017. Cambridge BRAINFest brought together neuroscientists from across Cambridge to present ground breaking research through interactive exhibits, film, art, talks, lectures and more in a 3-day free public festival.

Speaking about the award, Dr Glynn commented “BRAINFest was an ambitious festival which took one and a half years to plan and involved 170 neuroscientists who helped us stage 30 interactive exhibits in the Corn Exchange in addition to a programme of lectures, informal talks and an art exhibition featuring works by 200 local schoolchildren. BRAINFest exceeded all our expectations and we were delighted with the results. I am very grateful for the recognition of this work by the British Neuroscience Association and to all of my colleagues here at Cambridge.”
