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.
- 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!
