Becky has 14 years’ experience working in public involvement and engagement, starting in mental health and then moving to research in 2010 in the NIHR Cardiovascular Biomedical Research Unit. She works in diabetes, cardiovascular, lifestyle and respiratory research in one of the most diverse and deprived cities in the UK. Her background is in research ethics.
