We are very excited about the conversations and ideas for collaborating following our first Research Partnership Day with Professor Val Brunton’s lab at The University of Edinburgh on Monday 27th June. 

Lobular Breast Cancer UK (LBCUK) and University of Edinburgh have organised a free Research Partnership Day on Monday 27th June 2022.

Seven potential new patient advocates, all who had had a lobular breast cancer diagnosis, attended the day.

Val and her colleagues shared information about their research and gave a tour around the lab. 

Helen Coulthard & Lorna Walters from LBCUK talked about the work we have been doing at LBCUK over the past 9 months.

All of the participants had chance to talk about their experiences as patients and what their key concerns are about this distinct disease.

We’re looking forward to developing the partnership, building colaboration across clinicians, researchers and patient advocates, enhancing research, understanding and treatment outcomes for everyone affected by lobular.

A huge thank you to everyone involved in helping to deliver the day.

Thank you too to everyone who supported our recent Walking Our Mammaries fundraiser. Your donations helped to pay for travel bursaries for participants and our LBCUK volunteers to take part.

If you have any questions about the day or are interested in working with us at other locations in the UK, please contact us on info@lobularbreastcancer.org.uk
