Leonie Jayne Hodges
COSMIC Scientific Communications Officer
Leonie delivers on the communication strategy for COSMIC (Catalogue Of Somatic Mutations In Cancer) through social media management, graphic design, end-user interviews, in-depth blog posts/ articles and more
A highly adaptable communicator, I create a wide variety of compelling and scientifically accurate content in order to deliver on the marketing and communication strategy for COSMIC (Catalogue Of Somatic Mutations In Cancer).
As applications of genetic research expand, I see it as imperative to make this versatile branch of biology as accessible as possible to scientists and the public alike. This belief was always at the forefront of my education, where I regularly took on voluntary roles to present my studies to a variety of audiences and earned a qualification in public speaking in my spare time. This passion continues to fuel my work today, ensuring that the full potential of COSMIC’s gold standard genomic data is understood and used by oncologists around the world.
