Health and Wellbeing Showcase – Calls for Presentations
As the academic year rolls to an end The Health & Wellbeing Steering Group would like to invite colleagues to submit presentations or poster proposals for an in-person research showcase event to be held on Tuesday July 19th 2022, 13.00pm-17.00pm in SLB lecture theatre.
Through this event we hope to better inform colleagues about the diversity and excellence in Health & Wellbeing research being performed across Lincoln and help delegates identify new collaborations and grant ideas. This year’s showcase will be based around the following three themes:
Theme 1: Fundamental Sciences: This theme supports a broad diversity of subject specialism, and we encourage involvement foundational science from across the University to include, but not limited to: molecular, cellular, and structural biology to anatomical, physiological, psychological research areas, in addition to all aspects of engineering and computational analysis. You may be using experimental or theoretical approaches and be undertaking basic laboratory research through clinical application to healthcare delivery.
Theme 2: Applied Health Sciences Research: This theme supports a broad range of all applied aspects of health-related research across the university including, but not limited to: epidemiology, public health, rural health, biostatistics, emergency medicine, gerontology, primary care research and applied research conducted within the allied health professions.
Theme 3: Physical Activity and Creative Health: In recent years there has been an increased understanding of how physical exercise, creative pursuits, engagement with culture, and nature based activities have a positive and significant impact on physical and mental health, social relationships, and community development. As such, research aimed at exploring, quantifying and enhancing these practices is essential. This showcase theme will focus on research that opens up new opportunities for dialogue about research into physical activity and creative health from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives.
If you are involved in research that connects with or overlaps into these areas and would like to present your work at the showcase then please send an abstract (max 150 words) for your proposed talk or poster presentation to Charlotte Hudson-Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5 pm on Monday, 4th July 2022. Please also indicate which of the three themes it would be aligned with. We envisage that each presentation will be 10 minutes long. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Rob Dean (email@example.com).
