Patient and Public Involvement in Research

Your opinion matters

We need Patient and Public involvement (PPI) to help researchers do research that meets your needs. Without PPI, scientists plan their research based on what they think patients want and need.  This can lead to studies that few people want to take part in, treatments that patients won’t like or information that people don’t understand.  However, when patients and researchers work together, research is more likely to be acceptable, useful and easy to understand. Most importantly, your input gives researchers another point of view so that they can understand what priorities are most important to you. 

At Cambridge BRC, we aim to involve the public in all our research by providing a range of options so that you can find one that suits you. Read more about our PPI Strategy here.
