I believe that images can speak louder than words when trying to make an impact. The importance of pictures, video and audio recordings, when explaining a specialist topic to a wider audience, is imperative if you want to engage everybody in society. The Research & Dialogue group studies ethical rights surrounding genetics and makes this information accessible to the public, empowering society to make their own choices regarding their personal DNA. Having the opportunity to be part of a team that is working towards making a difference to everybody’s future is inspiring and rewarding.
