You'll find a variety of opportunities below to get involved and help us beat cancer sooner. Whether you've got lots of time to spare or only a little, and whatever your experience of cancer, we hope you'll find an opportunity that interests you. 

Patient Representative - Help us ensure our new immunology research has real patient benefit

Advances in the field of immunology research have the potential to benefit those affected by cancer and also those affected by arthritis. We want to involve you in a new collaboration between Cancer Research UK and Arthritis Research UK to develop new research ideas!

Survey - Do you have experience of cancer alongside other mental or physical health conditions?

Around 1000 people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer every day. Many of these people also have other long-term mental or physical health conditions. We want to understand how this affects patients, and if something can be done to better support cancer patients with other health conditions.

Survey - Share your views on how we communicate recommendations

The demand on staff delivering cancer treatments is increasing, but this workforce are already under immense pressure. To help staff continue to deliver the best treatment and care for patients, we're developinga set of recommendations and we need your views to help us do this.

Patient Representative - Share your experience to advise researchers

Can you provide advice to researchers from a patient or carer perspective?

They're setting up a group of people affected by cancer who can give opinions and advise them on how best to share the results with the public.

We're running a workshop for researchers and people affected by cancer. It's an opportunity to help us come up with new research ideas, and we want you to get involved!
