What is the clinical research nurse advisory group? 

Cancer Research UK’s clinical research nurse advisory group helps to make sure activities, content and resources as part of the Excellence in Research Programme continue to meet the professional and educational needs of research nurses working on cancer clinical trials. 

We are looking for clinical research nurses working with patients on clinical cancer trials, from all backgrounds, working in different clinical settings across the UK, and of all levels of experience.

  • You’ll have a keen interest in shaping the future of the Excellence in Research Programme and the work Cancer Research UK does with clinical research nurses working on cancer clinical trials

  • You’ll be able to apply your research nursing knowledge and experience when giving feedback
