Moredun scientists take on the Movember Challenge

Team Movember

November has seen Moredun Research Institute 'renamed' the Moustache Research Institute all in aid of raising awareness of men’s health.

A group of scientists from Moredun are taking part in ‘Movember’ - a month long moustache growing competition which aims to raise money for men’s health charities   Moredun’s team have joined hundreds of thousands of men across the World who take part in this annual event and has resulted in some most wonderful moustaches popping up on faces across the institute.

Dr Dave Bartley, team leader and proud owner of a dashing Dick Strawbridge-esque moustache commented:

“The Movember event is a light hearted way of raising awareness of serious and under reported causes, it also allows us a chance to break away from our shaving routine much to the ‘delight’ of our friends and family!”

The Movember Foundation addresses some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention; and in 13 years has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
