Dr Sam Moxon - Communication is one of your best research tools: Here’s why

Dementia Researcher Blogs

Dr Sam Moxon, narrates his blog written for Dementia Researcher. There are few things as important to our society as the ability to communicate with one another. It helps us express our ideas and feelings, understand the thoughts and emotions of others and build relationships. Communication allows us to both learn new ideas and pass our knowledge on. Without the ability to communicate, we would likely be one of the most primitive species on the planet. In this blog Sam makes a case for the importance of communication, at all levels. Find the original text, and narration here on our website. https://www.dementiaresearcher.nihr.ac.uk/guest-blog-communication-is-one-of-your-best-research-tools-heres-why/ -- Dr Sam Moxon is a biomaterials scientist at the University of Manchester. His expertise falls on the interface between biology and engineering. His PhD focussed on regenerative medicine and he now works on trying to develop 3D bioprinting techniques with human stem cells, so that we better understand and treat degenerative diseases. Outside of the lab he hikes through the Lake District and is an expert on all things Disney. Enjoy listening and reading our blogs?

Dr Sam Moxon - Are we Proactive Enough about Dementia?

Dementia Researcher Blogs

Dr Sam Moxon, narrates his blog written for Dementia Researcher. Sam has been doing some soul searching recently, and he got to thinking about health, remembering something that was mentioned in a recent podcast recording. Sam recently hosted a podcast with some pretty eminent researchers (check out the latest show on our main podcast) involved in the Race Against Dementia (RAD) initiative. One of the guests was talking about an interaction he had with Sir Jackie Stewart, the founder of the charity. He was recalling a conversation they shared where Sir Jackie expressed his frustration at how slow things seemed to move in dementia research. That was, I think, a part of the reason he started the charity. He wants to bring that F1 level of speed and innovation into the field. So how can we improve this image of slow progress, and try and feel a little better about our future? Sam explores in this blog.

Dr Sam Moxon - The Mental Struggle of Living with Chronic Illness

Dementia Researcher Blogs

Dr Sam Moxon, narrates his blog written for Dementia Researcher. It’s Mental Health Awareness Week and Sam thought it would be a good opportunity to talk about something that he has recently started to experience. It’s very much one of those “this is an issue I have and, by talking about it, maybe anyone else affected will find some comfort or useful advice” sort of blogs, for Sam, this is the challenge of living with a chronic illness, and how that can impact your mental health and not just the physical.

Dr Sam Moxon - How to Nail Your Conference Abstract

Dementia Researcher Blogs

Dr Sam Moxon, narrates his blog written for Dementia Researcher. What’s that you say? An IN PERSON conference? Sign me up!!! You may have noticed in recent months that more and more conferences are promising an in person experience this year. For Sam, this is extremely exciting. He loves conferences and has really missed seeing his friends, colleagues and collaborators (people can be all three!). There is no better place to make new connections, see some exciting new data and let your hair down than a conference. Some our closest collaborators are people we meet in the pub after the end of that day’s sessions (Top Tip: Always take the opportunity to go to one.) First, however, you need to submit your conference abstract. In most cases, your institute will only send you to a conference (they have to pay remember) if you are going to present something. That means you have to prepare and submit an abstract. So how do you do that? In this month’s blog, Sam gives you the best tips to write the perfect abstract.
