As part of Black History Month, our staff joined a talk jointly organised by our Race Equality & Equity Network and our Gender Equality Network to celebrate the contributions of black women in healthcare. We heard from Tumie Ntereke, a postgraduate researcher at the Leicester Cancer Research Centre and a member of the board of directors at Black in Cancer, alongside Patricia Hughes, a former Director of Nursing in the NHS and advocate for improving diversity in the NHS. Tumie and Patricia highlighted the importance of increasing diversity across the healthcare sector and the positive impact this can have on patient outcomes. We also learnt how we can better support black women in their careers and the changes that have already been made to increase diversity in the healthcare space. Thanks to both for an insightful session and to our staff members who took the time to listen 💙 #BlackHistoryMonth #SalutingOurSisters

Nearly three quarters of respondents to our survey of cancer researchers cited funding from the EU as important for their work, showing how crucial Horizon Europe association is for the future of cancer research.” #HorizonEurope #CancerResearch #CancerResearchUK
