The vital role of PhD students
We could not do our research today without the contribution of our PhD students. Every year, we take in a new cohort to commence their training as cancer scientists and work on vital research projects
Supervised by leading scientists at the ICR, at the same time as developing their skills, our PhD students embark upon four-year research projects that significantly advance our knowledge and understanding of cancer.
Our students play a key part in creating new scientific knowledge to drive forward our research strategy and make an impact on cancer patients’ lives.
Why we need your support
We want more students to benefit from an education with us and learn from the best minds in cancer research. We want more students to work on ground-breaking projects with the latest scientific and technological advances, providing tangible benefits for cancer patients worldwide.
But hosting a PhD student costs more than £160,000 over four years – and we do not have the funds needed to support all the excellent, deserving studentship projects that our scientists wish to pursue. The more donations we receive, the more studentships we can offer – and the sooner their discoveries will start to benefit cancer patients.
Donate today to help train the next generation of cancer researchers.
