Young people who have had retinoblastoma, we need you!

by | Nov 25, 2022 | News

The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust’s PhD researcher Nicola is looking for some creative young people to help her with an exciting retinoblastoma project!


I am going to enter a competition which encourages researchers to engage the public about their research area in a creative and interactive way. This could be through an installation or experience, as opposed to the ‘typical’ conference talk, where I just stand in front of a poster and talk – not that interesting!!

I would love to work with you to come up with an exciting way to share information about Retinoblastoma. If you are interested, this would involve a chat (online) in the next couple of weeks to discuss ideas. It may also include another meeting in the new year, although this is not compulsory. I would love to reimburse you with a voucher to thank you for your time.

Please let me know if you are interested.

Look forward to hearing from you 😊

Best wishes,


To get involved, email Nicola at nrv503@york.ac.uk
