Anne Kiltie has won the Research Engagement Award in the 2015 Cancer Research UK Flame of Hope Awards.
The awards are bestowed annually by Cancer Research UK to honour and celebrate the outstanding achievements of their truly inspiring supporters. Anne’s exciting research into bladder cancer has formed part of an ongoing CRUK Citizen Science Project, in which a mobile game ‘Reverse the Odds’ has been developed. The game, where members of the general public analyse research results, has been a huge hit, with nearly 3.5 million slides having been analysed to date.
