By providing a narrative we hope to provide context of a scientific endeavour many may not understand at first glance.Each week we will meet key players within a research centre each working towards a common goal from various angles. We will attempt to understand complex scientific concepts in an easily digestible format and to communicate why their research is important to address the overarching goal of the research centre.
