Public Engagement


We aim to engage with the public and local community and have many opportunities throughout the year for our supporters and donors, students and health care professionals to meet our scientists and clinicians to find out more about BCI's research.

We aim to:

  • Raise awareness of how lifestyle choices affect health and, through children, reach adults in economically and educationally challenged communities.
  • Increase the number of students studying science and taking up careers in science and health-care, especially relating to cancer research.
  • Showcase our cancer research to existing and potential supporters both in the City and East London community
