One of the key objectives of CanTest is to increase both the capacity and sustainability of cancer detection research in the UK and internationally. As well as via our research portfolio, we are supporting a number of other key initiatives to achieve this:
- Funding nine PhD Studentships and supporting a further eight with CanTest Senior Faculty as supervisors
- Employing five Clinical Research Fellows and five Postdoctoral Research Fellows
- Hosting an annual International School for Cancer Detection Research in Primary Care
- Funding Travelling Fellowships for Junior Faculty
These initiatives will support the development and optimisation of both cancer detection research in primary care and a new generation of researchers in the field.
An opportunity for shared learning and networking for both seasoned academics and up-and-coming researchers and held annually, you can find out more about our week-long residential International School for Cancer Detection Research in Primary Care on our International School page.
