Making a noise about research
The ‘Breathtaking Lungs’ project was developed with patients and researchers to raise awareness about respiratory research in Greater Manchester.
As the Public Programmes Team our aim is to involve and engage people from all walks of life in biomedical and health-related research. We’ve been working with people experiencing lung conditions, carers, artists and partner organisations, along with researchers from the University of Manchester and Wythenshawe Hospital (which has the largest clinical respiratory department in the UK).
Lung conditions can have a big impact on people’s lives; we gave patients and carers the opportunity to share their stories, so that other people can better understand their experiences.
We brought people together to try out different fun and creative activities such as singing, music while finding out more about research.
Please register your details with us so that we can keep you posted on events and opportunities that might be of interest.
