About this opportunity

If you’ve been affected by cancer, you could make a real difference to future research as a patient representative on our Population Research Committee. As a patient rep, you’d comment on and recommend which applications reviewed by the committee should be considered for funding by Cancer Research UK.

The Population Research Committee reviews applications for funding in the areas of clinical and public health epidemiology and educational and behavioural research on cancer prevention, screening and early diagnosis. Find out more.

We aim to fund research that has the potential for impact on clinical practice or public policy to benefit cancer patients and the public. Your invaluable input will ensure research studies involving patients, or using patient data, are well-designed and answer the questions most important to people affected by cancer.
