Dr Anne Moore appointed to the Life and Medical Sciences multidisciplinary committee of the Royal Irish Academy
Congratulations to Dr Anne Moore, School of Biochemistry & Cell Biology, who has been appointed to the Life and Medical Sciences multidisciplinary committee of the Royal Irish Academy.
The Royal Irish Academy committees build public engagement and understanding of the Sciences, humanities and social sciences.
In 2014 the Academy established ten Multidisciplinary committees. The Life and Medical Sciences Committee is an all-island multidisciplinary committee and the committee’s membership represents academia, industry, media, and other interest groups. The primary functions of the committee are to address issues of national and international interest through a programme of work, advise the Academy on the formation of policy and act as the national adhering organisation for international unions including the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) and the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS). The committee has a varied programme of works ranging from lectures, expert statements on issues of national and international importance, and special events focusing on topical issues. This work enables the committee to engage with the wider scholarly community, policy makers and the public.
