Our next big discovery could be you
The Institute of Cancer Research, London UK, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease. Today, we are world leaders in discovering new targeted cancer drugs, identifying new cancer genes and developing new forms of precision radiotherapy.
Under the leadership of our Chief Executive and President, Professor Paul Workman FRS, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) is ranked as the UK’s leading higher education institution for the quality and impact of its research. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (RM), we are rated in the top four centres for cancer research and treatment worldwide.
The ICR is committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us as research team leaders in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
