Public Engagement at Community Events

Dr Susanna Murphy from the Department of Psychiatry received funding for a project to improve and expand upon the Psychopharmacology and Emotion Research (PERL) Groups' current library of public engagement resources, specifically developing interactive activities that will appeal to all ages.
