The Oxford and Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs) are seeking new public members for its Diversity in Research Group.
They are particularly looking members from communities that are currently under-represented in health research including: Black, African, Asian and Caribbean communities, LGBT+ communities, people with disabilities or long-term conditions and younger adults (18–30 years old).
Meetings are approximately 6 times a year with opportunities for more involvement if you would like. Most meetings are remote but there are also some in-person meetings.
Members have a strong interest in health research and/or lived experience, a willingness to learn and the ability to work in a flexible and friendly way with other public members and staff. We are looking for members who live in the Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire or Berkshire areas.
If you are interested or have questions, please contact:
