The NCRI involves people affected by cancer across the breadth of its activities. With the right input into research at the right time, Patient and Public Involvement like this can improve the quality and relevance of research, ensure that we’re investing in the right areas of research, and that research findings are being translated into patient benefit.

One of the activities the NCRI Consumer Forum hosts is a ‘Dragons’ Den’ – an opportunity for researchers to present their research ideas, and gain valuable feedback from people directly affected by cancer (our ‘Friendly Dragons’).

To register your interest in presenting your research at a future Dragons’ Den, please complete the form below.
