Christopher's Smile made a commitment in autumn 2010 to fund a post doctorate researcher for 3 years in the ICR's Paediatric Drug Development and Testing Team. This project required approximately £197,000 in funding over 3 years. This post has now completed. Results from a pre-clinical study were published in the pretigious journal Cancer Cell on 20th June 2013. See link to read the article: Click Here
Applications were invited in summer 2012 for a new paediatric molecular pathology position and we announced the recipient of the £120,000 grant in autumn 2012. The successful candidate started in January 2013. The work being undertaken is the first of its kind in Europe for children with cancer.
Following invitations for applications in the autumn 2013,our latest research position with a focus on biomarkers began in spring 2014. The post is fully funded for 2 years. We are currently raising funds to extend the tenure to a third year.
