LIS DREaM 1: Breakout session 3


Published on

Stepping out of the comfort zone by collaborating across disciplines led by Professor Sara Rankin, Professor of Leukocyte and Stem Cell Biology at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London and Gina Czarnecki, artist.

This session will demonstrate how unlikely cross-disciplinary collaborations can generate exciting and unexpected outcomes, and prompt delegates to consider where they might seek similar experiences. Biomedical researcher Rankin will explain how her public engagement activities have transformed her professional identity, widened her professional network and informed her scientific research. Artist Czarnecki will discuss how her interactions and collaborations with a number of scientists and healthcare workers has enriched her practice. Together the breakout session leaders will talk about their current collaboration. Reflecting on Rankin and Czarnecki’s experiences, delegates will discuss the notion of “deep” collaboration through the two-way process of mutual influence, and the nature of “real” public engagement that runs throughout research, development and production, where public engagement can shape research and outcomes.
