Its #RED4RESEARCH Day 2022!
#Red4Research day aims to get as many people as possible wearing red to demonstrate their support and appreciation for all those participating, undertaking and supporting COVID-19 and other research.
On the front line and behind the scenes incredible research teams continue to collectively work on health and social care research. COVID-19 has forced us to do things differently, to be more innovative, flexible and more responsive. Over the past two years, the R&D community in collaboration with the health and care sectors and voluntary organisations has achieved a phenomenal amount.
Follow us on twitter @barnsleyrd with #red4research and see what is happening today.
