In May 2016 the Centre took part in an ‘Impact Matters’ event at the Core in Newcastle. This event celebrated patient and public involvement and the impact of research occurring within Newcastle University. Professor Turnbull, Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research, spoke about Novel IVF techniques being developed within the Centre and the impact of public involvement. Scientists from the Centre also contributed to this event by hosting an interactive display highlighting  the principles behind mitochondrial donation.
