Salford Biomedicine Society secure funding for future scientists

Categories: School of Science, Engineering and Environment

The newly elected council of the University of Salford’s Biomedicine Society have swiftly made their mark and are recipients of a grant from The Institute of Biomedical Science which will enable them to roll out learning resources for 500 Greater Manchester students.

The Biomedicine Society have plans for an aspirational outreach project which will create craft packs and gather educational resources for over 500 high school students in the region.

The grant, totalling £500, will enable the society to produce and distribute resources which will be in the form of packs for students in the region. The packs will contain several resources, including a booklet that contains a mix of text and practical activities highlighting various aspects of life as a biomedical student. It is hoped that the resources will inspire the Greater Manchester high school students to find and pursue an interest in the subject.

Speaking of the society’s achievement, Treasurer Ali Boda said: “We couldn’t have done this without Dr Sara Namvar and her initial ideas, and Aimee Pinnington as she’s supported us so much from applying for funding all the way to the final proofread. We truly have the best academics and an amazing team!”

Secretary Charles Middleton added: “It was definitely hard work but worth it. Hopefully, we can inspire some future scientists and healthcare specialists!”

The Biomedicine Society for the upcoming academic year is elected in June. A huge congratulations to the newly elected society, from who we hope to see more great achievements and projects in the future.
