Staff Profile

Dr Eve Cosgrave

Research and Impact Manager



I graduated from Newcastle University in 2014 with a PhD from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research, Newcastle University. During my time here my laboratory work focused on Parkinson's Disease and how mitochondrial dysfunction may play a role in neurodegeneration.

Throughout my PhD I was actively involved in public engagement events, science communication and had the opportunity to undertake a policy internship at the Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS). All of these increased my enthusiasm for the broader reaches of research and the diverse impact, work carried out here in Newcastle, has nationally and internationally. 

My current role, working with school research and impact facilitators, is to support colleagues across the Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Engineering, identify, maximise and convey the impact of research. Alongside this I also work to facilitate understanding of impact and its importance to the faculty as we continue documenting and evaluating examples of impact with excellence.
