About the opportunity

Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research – from peering down at cells in microscopes to testing new treatments in people – wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our supporters. That’s why we’re dedicated to keeping our supporters up to date with the progress we’re making, for example through our science blog and social media.

But we want to know what questions you have about cancer science that we haven’t answered. This could be anything you’re interested in, like:

  • What are genes?
  • Why doesn’t our immune system stop cancer developing?
  • Why is lung cancer hard to treat?

Once we have a selection of questions from supporters, we’ll put them to our social media audience, and will create a blog post, video or other content to answer the most popular question in our Science Surgery series.

All you need to do is fill in this short survey for the opportunity to have your questions answered by our scientists. You can complete it as many times as you want, then follow us on social media and you can vote for the questions you’d most like us to answer, using the #ScienceSurgery hashtag.
