Patient and Public Involvement/Engagement

The National Institute for Health Research Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (NIHR-BRC) at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Cambridge has over 1000 research projects currently on-going. Information on this can seen here.


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.

PPI DisplayIf you are a PI and would like to know more about the benefits of PPI/E and how you can be involved then please email Dr. Amanda Stranks (PPI/E and Communications Strategy Lead, NIHR Cambridge BRC): 


Immunology at the Cambridge Festival (previousely known as the Cambridge Science Festival)

The Science Festival provides the public with opportunities to explore and discuss issues of scientific interest and concern and to raise aspirations by encouraging young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM).

The Cambridge Immunology Network takes part each year in the Cambridge Science Festival.  We have a very popular discussion panel on an immunology related topic and also hands-on activities for children.  We have a group of very enthusiastic scientists who volunteer to organise these events.
