She is responsible for developing strategic approaches to engaging and educating public and professional audiences in genomic medicine. She is also an investigator on national and international projects focused on genomics workforce and education, teaching with molecular animations, and community engagement with genomics. In past roles in Australia, the US and UK, Bronwyn has focused on engaging different audiences with genetics, genomics and molecular biology. She has curated museum exhibitions in Australia, the US and the UK, and developed education programs for school students, teachers, professionals and public audiences. Bronwyn produced award-winning online resources for Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Dolan DNA Learning Center on molecular biology, genetics and cancer. She also established and managed the public engagement team for the largest genome centre in Europe, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. Throughout her career, Bronwyn’s focus has shifted between directly producing resources, advising on large public projects and enabling researchers in their own public engagement efforts. She has advised on exhibitions for the Science Museum and Natural History Museum in London, and significantly contributed to innovative education and public engagement collaborations, including educational resources, travelling exhibitions and events, alternate reality games, and a range of broadcast media.
