Results and Impact I have appeared on BBC radio Oxford three times in the past 2 years to promote the Oxford Brookes Science Bazaar festival. In the radio interviews I discussed the DTP programme, my own research, the fun to be had at the Science Bazaar and also demonstrated an Extracellular Vesicles kids activity live on air with Professor John Runions. The Science Bazaar had over 1500 visitors last year and 3000 this year, which I hope in some part is due to my outreach via radio. I have since appeared on the Matthew Wright show on talkRADIO to partake in their 'Women in Science' segment; where I shared my views on the challenges that women in the science community face. I discussed my own personal experiences as a young female PhD student, as well a going on to discuss the importance of my own research interests.
