Cancer Research UK is developing a new programme aimed at using different types of data to understand who is most at risk of developing cancer and improve how we prevent, detect, and diagnose cancer early.

During the next year, Professor Antonis Antoniou from the University of Cambridge will be developing this programme. They want to make sure that the programme will focus on what people affected by cancer, as well as the public, want and need and plan their involvement and engagement properly. This is why they would like to recruit a small Patient & Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) Steering Group to advise Prof Antoniou and his team over the next year.

They are looking for:

People affected by cancer, directly or indirectly

Expected commitment: 

1-year with opportunity to extend if the programme is funded.

2-hour meeting on 10 November, with two other similar meetings over next year with opportunities to be further involved if members want.

Commitment to inclusion:

Please get in touch with if you’d like to have a chat or you’re unsure whether to apply. Email and he’ll send you a short form to complete.

Closing date: 12th October 2023
