Patient InvolvementAddenbrookes

Clinical trials are an essential part of translational research. Patients who are part of a clinical trial are often invited to be on a panel or attend focus groups where they can talk about their treatment experience, review documents such as patient leaflets or comment on research findings. The principle investigators can draw upon this to make their research more relevant to their patients.

Fibroblast

‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
