Patient & Patient Involvement

Public & Patient Involvement in Research

Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) invites any member of the public (including patients, potential patients, carers and people who use health and social care services as well as people from organisations that represent people who use services) with an interest in research to become actively involved in helping us to better design, manage and communicate our research.

Please see below details of our past PPI events.

New Cross College, Finglas West, Dublin 11

New Cross College, Transition Year students are ‘Helping us explain cancer research’. The students co-created an animated video that helps illustrates what Cross Cancer Research does.


Holy Child School Killiney

As part of Science Week, Nov 2019 a ‘What science means to me’  event took place in Holy Child School, Killiney. Students listened to presentations on our research, participated in experimental demonstrations in biology, physics and chemisty, helped our PhD students communicate their science to a lay audience, and contributed artwork and feedback on the event.

‘Student Feedback’

  • “My favourite part was the experiments and talking about the jobs”
  • “My favourite part of this event was when we did the workshops, with all the different parts of science. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and I learnt lots”
  • “I really enjoyed the experiments during the event. They really encouraged me to study science when I leave school”
  • “I liked the presentation, so they didn’t just tell you what was happening they showed you”
  • “I liked how we were doing different things the whole time and it wasn’t boring. Most science I do in school is very boring and uninteresting whilst this workshop opened my eyes to STEM and how much I didn’t know”
  • “My favourite part was all the experiments and learning about Chemistry, Biology and Physics”
