About this opportunity
The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) partnership was established in 2001 to drive collaboration between organisations that fund cancer research, and they remain dedicated to their purpose which is to improve health and quality of life by accelerating progress in cancer-related research, through collaboration.
The NCRI Groups have a remit to develop portfolios of clinical trials and high-quality studies for specific cancer types or treatment approaches. This includes considering new research questions, developing proposals for trials, securing funding and overseeing the portfolio of existing studies. The groups are multi-disciplinary; with surgery, medical oncology, clinical oncology, radiology, pathology, epidemiology, statistics and other professions involved in clinical trials. Each group also has two consumer members to assist the group in understanding the perspectives of patients, carers and the public that are relevant to the work of the group.
