5th CanTest International School for Cancer Detection Research in Primary Care – Open for Applications

Boost your understanding of primary care cancer detection research at a residential school in Cambridge

The Fifth CanTest International School will be held in Cambridge from 16th-18th November 2022 and will feature teaching from experienced CanTest faculty on key research topics and methodologies as well as masterclasses from CanTest Senior Faculty. In addition there will be group workshops and chances to meet, share work and develop ideas for collaboration based on research ideas/projects that candidates bring to the School.

In previous years the CanTest International School was by invitation-only for CanTest and CanTest-aligned researchers. However with the fifth and final CanTest International School we want to open up to researchers from the around the world and are offering competitive scholarships covering travel to Cambridge, B&B accommodation in Cambridge for up to 4 nights (15th – 18th November) and attendance at the School.

So if you are an early career researcher interested in the field of early detection & diagnosis of cancer and want to immerse yourself in the world of cancer detection research in primary care, you are invited to apply for a place. You could be working on your Masters, be a clinical academic ACF, or have started your PhD recently, working in a relevant area and based anywhere in the world. If you are interested, but don’t fit these categories, please feel free to contact Dr Valerie Sills on vas46@medschl.cam.ac.uk to discuss.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from researchers in Lower and Middle Income Countries and look forward to hearing from some excellent applicants keen to become the next generation of researchers in Cancer Detection Research in Primary Care.
