The Furness Prize for Science Communication 2016

We are looking for a pathology trainee who has contributed significantly to science communication over a sustained period of time, including some activity in 2016. This person might have developed resources for teachers and students, organised outreach workshops, produced high quality public dialogue events, worked with other organisations such as museums or charities, evaluated their activities and encouraged colleagues to take part in science communication activities. An evidence-based evaluation of the effectiveness of the event(s) will usually be expected.

This prize was created to:

  • cultivate awareness amongst pathology trainees about the importance of public engagement 
  • reward and recognise trainees who have undertaken sustained high-quality science communication activities.
