NCRI Early Career Researcher Forum



The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) are hosting a virtual one-day event for early career researchers (ECRs) and members of the NCRI Early Career Researcher Forum on Tuesday 21 June 2022.

The NCRI Early Career Researcher Forum was launched in June 2021, and now represents a community of over 400 ECRs interested in and/or working towards careers in cancer-related research. This includes basic and translational researchers, allied health professionals (AHP) and clinical ECRs based in the UK. The Forum aims to offer ECRs the opportunity to build collaborative networks in their field of interest, whilst enhancing their skills and supporting career development through training, mentoring, networking and research involvement opportunities. This virtual ECR Forum event forms a core part of this offering.

The inaugural Early Career Researcher Forum event programme has been tailored to the interests and needs of early career researchers and members of the NCRI Early Career Researcher Forum, with the aim to educate, engage and inspire the next generation of leading cancer researchers. It will feature a number of topical sessions including panel discussions, educational items and networking, as well as an ECR Proposals Guidance session.
