As part of the NCRI Early Career Researcher (ECR) Forum Event on Tuesday 21st June, members of the NCRI ECR Forum will have the opportunity to take part in an informal proposal guidance session.

ECRs are invited to submit cancer study ideas at any stage of development for peer review from a panel of fellow ECRs. If selected, each applicant will be allocated a short period of time to present their study idea, engage in thoughtful discussion with their peers and listen to their feedback.

This session presents an exciting opportunity for researchers to practice submitting study proposals, presenting their ideas and taking on feedback. This session is also a brilliant opportunity for the members of the panel to gain experience reading and listening to proposals, and offering their feedback.

If you are interested in being on the panel for this session: Please sign up to the NCRI ECR Forum and you will be notified when registration opens. You will be automatically involved in the proposal guidance part of the event on 21st June 2022.

If you are interested in submitting and presenting a study idea: Please complete the form below, including the attached proforma before the submission deadline, which is Monday 30th May, 12pm. Please do not worry if you are not able to complete every aspect of the form.
