BRC Molecular Pathology Starter Programme

This annual programme offers histopathology specialty registrars training in the fundamental aspects of molecular pathology. 

The programme aims to give histopathology trainees a basic foundation in molecular pathology, with the expectation that this will significantly enhance their careers in general diagnostic histopathology, as well as provide grounding for any later interest in pursuing translational or basic research.

Applications are now closed. 

Pathway to Independence Programme

Developing future clinical academic leaders in cancer research is a career development and leadership programme for early-career clinical academics. 

The programme is currently closed to applications and will re-open in 2021.

Non-clinical PhD studentships

We are supporting 15 non-clinical translational PhD studentships at the ICR to provide additional research capacity in the BRC's key areas of strategic need, such as immuno-oncology and molecular diagnostics.

The 2021 programme is now closed to applications
