CCRCB Summer Research Programme


The Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) is delighted to announce a highly successful Summer Research Programme, in which 18 students participated.

This year, the students came from backgrounds in biomedical science, biochemistry, medicine, dentistry, and natural science. Alongside several QUB students, there were also students from Scotland, France, Italy, Austria and the Republic of Ireland.

CCRCB Principal Investigators offered a range of projects on bioinformatics, medicinal chemistry, blood, breast, prostate, gastrointestinal and genito-urinary cancers, and radiation biology.

Summer students from CCRCB, the Centre for Experimental Medicine and the Centre for Biomedical Sciences Education also enjoyed a social event involving a bus tour of Belfast, including a stop at Stormont, followed by bowling at the SSE arena.

The continued success of the programme relies not only on those Principal Investigators who offer projects but also the funding streams from the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences; Centre for Dental Education; Centre for Biomedical Sciences Education; Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI and the Marguerite Dympna Gullery Studentship, all of which combine to help create a vibrant postgraduate and postdoctoral community.
