The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, and discovered many of the early chemotherapy drugs. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.

The ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Our unique partnership with The Royal Marsden and ‘bench-to-bedside’ approach allows us to create and deliver results in a way that other institutions cannot. Together we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.

The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.

The Institute of Cancer Research Drug Development Unit is looking for a Clinical Data Analyst to join its investigator-initiated trials team in Sutton, Surrey.

DDU conducts first-in-man phase I trials involving a range of investigational drugs and underpinned by extensive analysis of biomarkers, both predictive and pharmacodynamic. The Unit includes the Oak Foundation Drug Development Centre (Oak Ward) housed within The Royal Marsden at the Sutton site and specifically designed for phase I clinical trials. Oak Ward allows researchers to enter almost 300 patients onto phase I trials each year. This makes the unit one of the largest of its kind in the world.

DDU also has an expanding portfolio of ICR-sponsored, investigator-initiated, Phase I trials of ICR drugs, novel combinations of targeted drugs and promising drugs de-prioritised by industry. These studies are managed by a dedicated team within the DDU that performs those functions associated with sponsoring early phase trials including: project management, monitoring, pharmacovigilance, database development and central data review.
