How Researchers Changed the World
Introducing a new podcast series
Gain an insight into the fascinating world of research with the How Researchers Changed the World podcast.
Each episode follows the story of one passionate researcher, unpacking their motivations for the subject they study, the challenges of their research, and how one particular piece of research went on to change the world we live in.
If you’re a researcher yourself, these inspirational stories can help you unlock the potential of your own work, laying the foundations for your research to change the world too.
Episode 1: The importance of music therapy for dementia patients
Dr Orii McDermott is Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham. In this episode she discusses how her work as a music therapist gave her an awareness of the research needed to enhance her own practice and to improve the lives of her patients, people living with dementia.
Alongside the How Researchers Changed the World podcast, there are two 12-week learning programs for researchers. Whether you’re an early career researcher embarking on your first article, or a mid-career researcher juggling competing pressures, we have a program for you.
Helping you discover how your research can change the world, they’re designed to help you supercharge your research career and boost your impact.
When you sign up you’ll receive a chapter via email each week. You can then explore the chapter at the time that works best for you. Over 12 weeks those chapters will build into an indispensable guide you can continue to use throughout your research career.
