Public Engagement

As part of the CRUK Barts Centre, we engage with our local communities by providing opportunities for supporters and donors, students and healthcare professionals to meet our scientists and clinicians - so that they can find out more about BCI's research.

Our goals:

  • Raise awareness of how lifestyle choices affect health and reach people on low incomes in communities with barriers to further education.
  • Encourage students to study and take up careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering & maths), especially around cancer research.
  • Showcase our research to existing and potential supporters, clinicians and scientists, especially in the City and East London.

We also hope to reach further afield via our social channels - follow us using links in the footer or contact us!USE CRUKBartsRGBFixed
