CARIAD researchers participated in welcoming researchers from Cardiff University School of Medicine to attend an evening event on the 21st March 2013 at Howard Gardens Gallery. Medical school staff shared research interests, identified synergies and potential future collaborations with researchers from CSAD and CARIAD. The evening was an informal and intimate occasion where fruitful discussions commenced over a glass of wine and crudités. CARIAD were excited by the opportunity to engage with our medical partners and predict this to be the first of many interactive events, projects and products.
The event had equal numbers of staff from each University (9 and 9) presenting two slides over two minutes to summarise their research interests. The reminder of the event showcased some of the outputs from researchers at CSAD and CARIAD. Dr. Wendy Keay-Bright and Dr. Cathy Treadaway showcased their research in the form of a mini exhibition showing artworks and posters. CARIAD research student Ben-Ewart Dean also participated giving demonstrations of the apps ReacTickles and Somantics. This visual display offered unique insights into our projects giving the School of Medicine lots to talk about and reflect on, long after the work came down. Exciting times so watch this space!
