Miss Rebecca White
Having qualified with B.Sc in Biochemistry and Genetics, I've spent the past 5 years specialising in science communication within two of the UK's leading medical research charities: Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation.
My roles within these charities primarily focused on fundraising using compelling science storytelling - including delivering pitches to corporarte partners, writing blogs and propositions for high value donors, working with YouTubers and celebs on science demos for Channel 4's Stand Up to Cancer live show, and editing/signing off public facing research content.
Through two secondments, I also upskilled in the field of patient involvement and innovation. The former involved taking a co-creation approach to build engagement with people who'd taken part in CRUK's clinical trials, leading to the successful trial dissemination strategies and a successful pilot of introducing thank-you cards into clinical settings. The latter saw me delivering transformational (£10m+) product development cycles using sprint methodology.
