Can we use poetry to communicate our science to the public? That was one of the questions asked at this year’s Cúram retreat in Athlone, along with other interesting challenges pertaining to our research and outreach activities. Congratulations to Liam and Neville on their election as graduate student representatives and a big thank you to the organisers – it was very inspiring to hear about the varied strands of research being carried out in Cúram and to get a ‘real world’ perspective from the members of the advisory board.
If you’re wondering how our attempts at poetry went – the answer is: Not Great, Not Terrible. Thanks to team Drug Delivery (Joe Byrne, Manita Dangol, Liam Fitzgerald, Jose Antonio Monterru, Neville Murphy) for their contributions to this work of art, and to Neville for the video.
