About this event

Staff and students from all Schools and Professional Services are welcome this event hosted by the Doctoral College.

The event, sponsored by a Vice Chancellor’s Award for Excellence, will showcase outstanding disability (physical and mental) research at the University.

Doctoral researchers Amber Guest, Kim Hutton, Simon Briley, Lesley Sharpe, Chloe Blackwell, Eva Rodgers, Victor Jeganathan and Tigmanshu Bhatnagar will give thought-provoking and inspiring talks on the day.

The talks will explore a wide variety of topics including families raising children with autism, breaking down exclusion barriers, physical activity in a secure psychiatric hospital, mental health of truckers, and shoulder pain in wheelchair athletes.

There will also be the opportunity to hear about disability support available to staff and students at Loughborough University and the Global Disability Innovation Hub.
