Our work is carried out in partnership with a wide range of patients and members of the public. Across our research programmes, population studies and clinical trials we consult and collaborate with a variety of groups on topics from ageing to cardiovascular disease and cancers.
Patient and Public Involvement
There is a wealth of contact between researchers and health intelligence analysts with patients and the public in East Anglia and Cambridgeshire, organised across the research and service communities.

Get involved in our research
Our researchers are often looking for people who would like to volunteer to take part in our public health research projects. See the latest on this here.
Engaging with our local communities
We are intensifying engagement with our local communities with a wide range of activities and strategies. We are carrying out studies of our campus workforce; and we involve patient representatives in all stages of our studies.
Our “Citizen Science” projects use techniques including crowdsourcing to classify tumour data in collaboration with Cancer Research UK, in a project led by Professor Paul Pharoah.
We are contributing to the curriculum of the new University Technical College Cambridge, the new school on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, for training scientific technicians capable of working across academia and industry.
Public Health at the Cambridge Science Festival
Each year researchers and scientists at the Institute deliver talks, demonstrations and workshops open to the thousands of visitors to the Festival organised by the University of Cambridge. The Cambridge Institute of Public Health and our members organise many events and workshops at the Festival. Check the main Festival site for details and see our 2016 public health listings page here.
