Your career in cancer research – working together to defeat cancer

We’ve created a guide to careers in cancer research for anyone interested in science – particularly for young people in secondary schools and sixth forms.

The booklet covers:

  • what are scientists like as people?

  • what does a research career involve?

  • where to start on a career in science
