Inspiring tomorrow's leaders
We will empower our students and early-career researchers to become tomorrow’s leaders in cancer research and treatment by providing the best possible education, training and careers support.
The ICR is a world-leading higher education institution and plays a vital role in building the future cancer research community globally. We are a member institution of the University of London, with a strategic goal to educate and train the next generation of cancer researchers and clinicians.
Our education strategy 2022–27, Inspiring tomorrow’s leaders, sets out our future aspirations for education, training and support at the ICR – dovetailing with our goals for research, impact and organisational excellence as we work to defeat cancer.
We aim to offer our students the highest possible standard of education, informed by the very latest scientific approaches and technological advances. We are also committed to providing exceptional career support for postdoctoral scientists and clinicians. It is important to us that our students and early-career researchers continue to perform excellently once they have graduated from the ICR – going on to leading roles in cancer research, oncology and related professions all over the world.
Our plans for education are structured into three core goals, which are designed to further enhance the quality and range of learning and teaching at the ICR:
