About the opportunity

Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research 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. Often, we do this 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 you’ve sent us a selection of questions, we’ll put them to our social media audience, and create a blog post, video or other content to answer the most popular question in our ‘Science Surgery’ series.

For the chance to have your questions answered by our scientists, just send them to us in this short survey. Then follow us on social media and vote for the questions you’d most like us to answer, using the #ScienceSurgery hashtag.
