First ever Teaching Week to promote the ICR’s academic excellence

 Students in class

The Institute of Cancer Research will be underlining its credentials as a global leader in cancer research, education and training through a series of communication activities during its first ever Teaching Week.

We will be running a range of communication activities highlighting our work to train the brightest and best students in order to shape the next generation of cancer researchers and clinicians.

From today we will be publishing a series of videos, blogs and news stories on our website, and featuring the world-class nature of our teaching and training across our social media channels.

Dr Barbara Pittam, the ICR's Registrar, will outline our outstanding reputation as the top higher education institution in the country for academic performance, and our students will describe in their own words why they are so excited to study here.

Look out for updates on the ICR's website and social media channels, and support Teaching Week by following the hashtag #ICRteachingweek on Twitter.

You can also read our Learning and Teaching strategy 2016-21, which sets our priorities and principles for education and training at the ICR.

The week has been timed to coincide with the ICR's Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, which will celebrate the achievements of all our students and thank everyone who has supported their work.

All content from this week, including news items, blog posts and videos will be brought together on our special Teaching Week 2017 page.

Ranked #1

The ICR is a college of the University of London and ranks as the top academic research centre in the UK. We play a vital role in securing the capacity and quality of the future global cancer research community – attracting some of the brightest people from all over the world to work and study here, and creating a vibrant, dynamic place for cancer research.

Our partnership with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is also unique, enabling us to provide opportunities for translational and clinical research not available anywhere else in the UK.

The Academic Dean, Professor Clare Isacke, said: "The ICR is recognised internationally for its academic excellence and as a world-leading organisation for cancer research and training, so we are delighted to be able to highlight this through our new Teaching Week.

"Education and research are a connected continuum, and our students go on to become some of the leading experts in their fields. It's important to recognise the contribution of our students to the ICR's research, and the work of colleagues such as members of Faculty, the ICR's Academic Dean's team, Academic Services and so many others who help to educate and train the next generation of cancer researchers and clinicians."
