MRC Centre and NIHR HPRUs EEH and CRTH at New Scientist Live 2022

The MRC Centre for Environment and Health together with the NIHR Health Protections Research Unit’s in Environmental Exposures and Health, and Chemical Radiation Threats and Hazards attended again this year the New Scientist Live 2022.

The NSL 2022 event took place on the 8th and 9th October at ExCel London and we were also there with our stand.

Within the MRC CEH, CRTH HPRU and EEH HPRU we investigate the complex relationships between genes and environment, investigating the effects of air and water pollution, ionising and non-ionising radiation and the future impacts of climate change on human health.

On our stand we had quizzes, interactive games and science activities to highlight the type of work we undertake everyday to understand how our environments shape out health and wellbeing. It was a great success and we enjoyed it a lot! We are already thinking with what activities we will join the NSL 2023!
