Clinical Research Fellowships

We bring together the worlds of cancer research and clinical practice by offering clinical research fellowships which provide clinically-qualified students with the opportunity to do scientific research and gain a postgraduate research degree.

Our academic clinicians form a vital link in our translational research, bringing knowledge of clinical practice into the laboratory and taking the knowledge of laboratory research back into the clinic and using it to help cancer patients.

Dr Meera Nandhabalan is a Clinical Research Fellow working at the ICR as part of a research group focusing on childhood brain tumours and whether they might respond to targeted therapies developed for adult cancers.

Being a clinical research fellow you have the privilege of being privy to both the clinical and laboratory research worlds. You can see a clinical problem that needs solving, and then can go back into the lab to do the research to find the solution. Dr Meera Nandhabalan Clinical Research Fellow
