Reaching beyond Cambridge

We aim to reach beyond Cambridge to raise awareness about stem cells on a national and international level.

Recent highlights

Projects include our digital engagement work and the 4L Rally to Morocco.

Why?

  • 66% of the UK public do not feel well informed about stem cell research and only 57% feel the benefits outweigh the risks (Public Attitudes to Science Survey, 2014).
  • Stem cell research and regenerative medicine will affect global communities and impact global health.
  • It is important our engagement work enhances the debate at this level.

How?

  • We will grow our digital and online presence to allow our researchers to engage geographically dispersed groups, co-creating content to enhance the relevance of our films, podcasts and social media to our target audiences.
  • We will build UK, European and International partnerships to collaborate on new and existing engagement initiatives.
  • We will utilise our researchers’ global networks to engage communities with the people, and in the places that best represent them.

Outcomes

  • Awareness of basic stem cell biology concepts increases.
  • Trust in stem cell research and scientists increases.
  • Tailored resources are available for people to interpret stem cell research and its therapeutic potential.
