Professor Hillary Lappin-Scott talks about her enthusiasm for taking part in Soapbox Science 2013 and the importance of both public engagement, and women in science.
Soapbox Science is an annual public science communication event that transforms public areas in central London into an arena for public learning and scientific debate.
The event follows the format of Hyde Park's Speaker's Corner, which is historically an arena for public debate. Soapbox Science aims to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy, learn from, heckle, question, probe, interact with, and be inspired by some of the UK's leading scientists.
Hillary's event this year is entitled 'From gums to bums: bacteria through the body', drawing from her expertise as a Professor of Microbiology at Swansea University.
