BACR provide educational and training opportunities for all those involved in the cancer field, particularly the next generation of cancer research professionals
The British Association for Cancer Research (BACR) is a professional membership association for all those working and studying in cancer research within the United Kingdom and beyond.
The BACR aims to promote the advance of research in relation to all aspects of cancer and encourage the exchange of information
We provide educational and training opportunities for all those involved in the cancer field, particularly the next generation of cancer research professionals.
We also organise scientific conferences and workshops, and offer meeting bursaires and fellowships, to enable our membership to attend cancer focused events around the world. Over the past three years, the BACR has provided over £150,000 in bursaries, fellowships and awards.
“The BACR Conference on The Challenges Preventing Cancer Cure was absolutely fantastic; it was an amazing experience to be completely immersed in the key oncology topics for the three days. To be surrounded by such brilliant minds, and listening to the debates and experiences was a real privilege. A real positive for me was seeing lots of people from all backgrounds and countries coming together under one roof to learn from each other; I have never experienced something like this as I feel normally different industries can be quite siloed. I think I left the conference with more questions than answers given the amount of information absorbed in a short time period; which is a good thing!!!”
