QMU researcher to take part in Soapbox Science on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile

By Press Office

A researcher from Queen Margaret University (QMU) will be getting on her ‘soapbox’ on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile next month alongside fellow female researchers from across Scotland to share her passion for science with the public.

Erin Miley, from QMU’s Clinical Audiology, Speech and Language Research Centre, is taking part in Soapbox Science, an initiative set up to bring science to public spaces.  Members of the public will have the opportunity to find out more about world-leading research, to ask questions, heckle and be inspired by our remarkable women in science. 

The speakers will be armed only with a soapbox and a white coat – there’s no speaker, no blackboard, and definitely no PowerPoint!  Erin will use her platform – literally - to talk about how mental health affects speech production.  

Erin said: “QUOTE”.

Soapbox Science was commended by the Prime Minister in 2015, and was delighted to be awarded a Silver Medal from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) in June 2016. 

Come along to the Royal Mile, near the City Chambers, from 11am-2pm on Saturday 8 June to find out more.
