Making things clearer

Chris enables Southampton's research teams to engage effectively and clearly, supporting the growth, conduct and use of our research in advancing health and healthcare.

Clinical research in Southampton 

Our hospital-university partnership website, is part of Chris' work to establish a clear, coherent picture of clinical research in Southampton for our communities and our audiences.

You can visit that site to find out more, or get in touch with Chris to discuss ways of engaging with us if you, your community or organisation want to know more about our work.

During his time with Wellcome he developed a public engagement strategy for the Crick Institute, and was seconded to manage communications and public engagement for the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
