Simon Carding speaking at the Assembly Rooms in NorwichCommunity talks

Our staff routinely present talks to local and national community groups and associations on a range of food and health related topics relevant to our research programme.

If you would like a member of staff to give a talk on a particular issue or to speak in general about our work please email giving details of when and where your group meet and how long the presentation should be.

An event held in Norwich in January 2017 gave the public a chance to hear about some of the biomedical research being undertaken on the debilitating condition ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis).

The event was jointed hosted by ourselves and Invest in ME Research, a charity promoting biomedical research and education into ME, which is aiming to establish a UK centre of excellence, to improve ME diagnosis and coordinate research into treatments and cures.

The talks were introduced by Dr Ian Gibson, former MP for Norwich North and from the Invest in ME Research Advisory Board.
