Ever wonder about the story behind the BHCRI logo? After a number of logos suggested by a website designer were rejected by the BHCRI working group (back in 2009), honorary members Louise Parker and Mark Bernstein came up with one. The logo, comprised of gold and burgundy blocks, represents a ubiquitous 2D barcode that encompasses both cutting edge technology and everyday life, and stands for the complexity of scientific data relating to cancer research.
To coincide with the new strategic plan, we undertook a refresh of the logo. It’s also now a functioning QR code and will lead you back to BHCRI’s website.
BHCRI trainees and members are encouraged to include the BHCRI logo on their presentations.
