Cancer research relies upon the participation of people like you! Sometimes this entails answering surveys, being interviewed, or engaging in focus groups. Other times it may involve an active role in the design of research questions, study information, or research design.

We are proud to support projects that are different, innovative, and have real benefits for cancer patients and their loved ones around the world, by assisting researchers in recruiting participants to get involved in cancer research.

See and search through our latest opportunities to get involved in research, using the filters below. Many of our opportunities are online, so if you don’t see anything in your area, try searching ‘all locations’.

Other opportunities will be added all the time so please keep a look out here and on our social media for other ways you might be able to get involved.

Online Survey - Investigating the impact of paediatric cancer treatment on young adults’ educational attainment, cognitive ability and attitudes to learning.

This study aims to investigate the impact of paediatric cancer treatment on young adults’ cognitive ability, attitudes to learning and educational attainment. Jessica is looking to recruit participants currently aged between 18-22 years old for this pilot study who have previously received a cancer diagnosis of any tumour type, before the age of 16. Participation in this study will provide valuable information which could be used to understand how best to support children who have cancer whilst they are in education, as this is an area which is currently under-researched in the UK.
