Richard Stephens

BioMed Central

Bio: Richard is a survivor of two cancers, a heart emergency and sundry other health challenges. He has acted as a carer for family members with both mental health and physical problems. Richard's interest in research comes from his own experiences as a patient, and as a participant in four clinical trials and eleven other research studies. He is the joint Editor-in-Chief of BMC's Journal of Research Involvement and Engagement, in some ways a natural extension from his secondary career as a freelance journalist (mostly sports) and author (mostly local history). His main professional life was spent in education and in local government, but Richard is now a full-time patient advocate in research, driven by a desire to make sure that research outcomes benefit patients, and that the process of participating is made as easy as possible so that patients can help bring benefits to other patients. He Chairs the (UK) National Cancer Research Institute's Consumer Forum and serves with several other international and national committees and bodies, such as EORTC, Eupati, MRC CTU, Genomics England and CRUK. His roles include advisory, funding, and priority-setting work. When time allows, Richard engages in a battle of wills with a gym treadmill, and enjoys sleeping.
