Cambridge Infectious Diseases

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

Studying at Cambridge


Public Engagement

The Cambridge Infectious Diseases Interdisciplinary Research Centre values outreach events as a chance to highlight the importance of infectious diseases research and to discuss the collective work across Cambridge with a wide range of people across society. CID is also keen to inspire the next generation of  infectious diseases researchers, with outreach events  and resources targeting secondary school aged pupils or their teachers.

Organisations or individuals interested in collaborating on outreach projects should contact the coordinator Dr. Allyson Walsh at   (or if you are a researcher and would like to volunteer to participate in an event and share your research more widely).

Future outreach events:

Pint of Science 

Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation that brings some of the most brilliant scientists to your local pub annually thru a festival - to discuss their latest research and findings with you. You don't need any prior knowledge, and this is your chance to meet the people responsible for the future of science (and have a pint with them). Next dates: 14 May 2018. Superbugs and Antibiotics at the Maypole Pub. Fully Booked.
