Emma’s role is to create and maintain links between the Centre’s researchers and local people by engaging with individuals and community groups.

Emma develops and manages a broad range of engagement activities and events which are designed to help local people learn more about cancer, and the work we are doing to help reduce the impact the disease locally, nationally and globally.

Throughout the year we host a number of events which offer a fantastic opportunity to see behind the scenes in one of our cancer research labs and to meet our scientists. We also host events at community settings.

Anyone wanting to find out more, or request a visit, can contact Emma.
