Outreach is a cornerstone of CMMT activities. Our involvement in community activities provides us the opportunity to engage in a rich dialogue with those who support and benefit from our research.
By participating in outreach activities we are able to help increase awareness in our communities about research, and also broaden our perspective as researchers. We play an active role in bringing patients, health societies and advocates, and the public closer to research scientists in the lab. Increasing the understanding of science, disease and health issues in the community helps patients, their families and the communities in which they live in making better life choices and coping with the imact of disease in their lives.
