Summer 2018 at SNAC

Our SNAC group had an exciting start to summer 2018:

  • Thanks to everyone who attended the Swansea Science Festival. Our SNAC group was presenting fascinating and ‘hands-on’ experiments. We enjoyed the big interest especially of the kids in eating behaviour and science in general.
    We hope to see you next year again.
  • Alecia Cousin, Aimee Pink, Jennifer Gatzemeier and Menna Price presented at the BFDG annual meeting. This year it was hosted in beautiful Lyon, France.
    See our event page.
  • For the first time Swansea University held a Pint of Science and SNAC was excited to be part of it. Hayley Young and Dave Benton unravelled the myths around eating and some of our favourite foods in an exciting discussion.
    See our event page.
  • Huge congratulations to Tanisha Douglas who represented the College of Human and Health Science at the 3MT (3 Minute Thesis) competition and became third.

  • SNAC was represented by Alecia Cousin, Hayley Young and Dave Benton at Nutrition 2018 held in Boston, Massachusetts.
