Summer Research Programme
The The Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research Summer Research Programme provides an excellent opportunity for promising young students to undertake a short research project for eight consecutive weeks over the summer period.
Our research placements run from mid June to mid August with a stipend of £150 per week. Students are expected to be available for the whole eight weeks and holidays should be planned outside of this period.
Students will undertake a lab based project which will include a short report and poster presentation. We offer projects in the following areas:
- Breast / ovarian cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Blood cancer (leukaemia / lymphoma / myeloma)
- GI cancer
- Stratified Medicine
- Medicinal Chemistry
- Molecular Pathology
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we have considered it necessary to cancel this year's Summer Research Programme. We are disappointed to have to cancel any events of this nature, but it has been done with your welfare in mind and will allow members of staff to focus on the continued delivery of education to our students in such challenging circumstances.
