Other research opportunities

Research opportunities from other organisations are listed below. To the best of our knowledge the projects meet CLIC Sargent values and ethical standards, however the organisation listed as ‘research lead’ is responsible for the running of the project, conduct of the researchers and use of the data.

CLIC Sargent supports research projects from a wide range of institutions and organisations, both nationally and internationally. Here is a snapshot of some of the projects we’re supporting:

Can we support your research?

We don’t fund research, but we can support in a number of other ways:

  • Promote surveys, interviews and other opportunities with the young people and families we support
  • Offer information and guidance on conducting research with young cancer patients and their families
  • Facilitate patient and public involvement activities within the organisation
  • Signpost and identifying relevant literature and other materials
  • Signpost relevant projects to organisations like the National Institute for Health Research.

What type of projects we support

We support projects which seek to understand and address the impact a cancer diagnosis has on young people and families. We will only support projects which have received ethical approval. We do not support undergraduate university research projects.
