Public engagement is at the heart of the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute's research vision. We aim to encourage and support a culture in which public views feed into the University’s health research. By engaging public and patients at all stages of the research process we foster world-class engaged health research that meets patients' needs at a local, national and international level.
For more information or advice about public engagement at the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute contact the institute’s Public Engagement Associate Jo Stubbs.

For the public
Where possible, we encourage members of the public to meet our researchers, discuss their work and suggest new research ideas.
We see public engagement and patient public involvement (PPI) as opportunities to strengthen research by adding new viewpoints, backgrounds, thoughts and ideas to discussions around a project.
