Today's events


INSPIRE is designed to engage medical, DENTAL and veterinary undergraduates with research.

The INSPIRE scheme allows schools to deliver locally designed activities aimed at informing and encouraging students about the benefits and potential of a career in research. By creating events, students can share their research experiences and develop new ideas in a friendly and supportive environment. 

The INSPIRE scheme is coordinated by the Academy of Medical Sciences and supported by the Wellcome Trust.
