As I said before in a previous post a couple of weeks ago (watch-this-space.html) I submitted a blog post to The Cancer Researcher-EACR Science Communication Prize. One of my submissions was shortlisted and has been published on their online magazine.
I wrote this blog post about research engagement and why it's important for scientists to engage with the public. We need to be better at discussing cancer and cancer research with a wider audience. Nearly everyone in the world has been affected by cancer in some way so everyone is interested in learning more. It's also a great way for scientists to be asked questions they have never thought of. Plus it's so rewarding to share what you do on a day to day basis.
