Local Microbiology Event Sponsorship recipient

Ivan Lafayette, PhD student, University of Nottingham

Ivan received Local Microbiology Event Sponsorship in 2014 to host his event, 'Blogging Microbes – Communicating microbiology to netizens'.

As Ivan was in the final stages of his PhD, he wanted to improve his transferable skills by applying for a small grant and organising an event.

"Anyone involved in research these days has an opportunity to engage with the public, and the general public is also more enticed by science communication. People who attended this event got some insight into the way one can start, how to use the different tools in developing one's communication skills, how to avoid common mistakes and produce better articles, and how to build a network to learn and share more."
