I joined PCR in October as the Research Communications Intern. My role involves communicating all of our exciting research projects via our website, social media and newsletter, as well as working on our Patient Voice project.
Since I started, I have been busy travelling around the UK to meet all of the scientists we started funding as a result of our 2019 grant call. It has been great to meet the faces behind the research, and to find out more about what their projects mean for prostate cancer patients. I can’t wait to bring together everything I’ve learned on these trips and share it all with all of our fantastic supporters- without whom these research projects would not be possible!
Firstly, I would like to tell you about our trip to Aberdeen. We met Professor Iain J McEwan and Dr Irene Hunter to learn about their PCR-funded research project on hormone therapy.
