Much of the work we do at Liggins is for the benefit of our community, and we share our research findings through public lectures and events, publications, and learning resources for secondary school students. We also involve the community in the many clinical studies we run, which are designed to improve health outcomes in newborn babies, children and adults. Find out how you can take part by clicking the study pages below.
