PCIE support for researchers


The PCIE team are able to support and guide researchers with the PCIE plans for their projects, from start to finish and anywhere along this journey. We signpost or direct and guide on how, when and where to do good quality Public Involvement, underpinned by the UK Standards for Public Involvement.  We help to recruit and support a team of Public Advisors and Contributors who act as a community of skilled and confident public members who can support our researchers in their work.


Our Current PCIE team includes;

Pippa Shaw – Team Lead

Louise Lacey – PCIE Coordinator
