Call for young cancer leaders

Added: Monday 20 April 2015

UICC is giving eight young cancer professionals the chance to attend the World Cancer Leaders' Summit, as part of an attempt to find future leaders in the field. To apply, you must be under 40 and already in a leadership position with a successful track record. Full members of UICC are encouraged to nominate suitable people within their organisation. Nominated young leaders will then be required to submit an essay of up to 1,000 words along with supporting information such as a CV and references. Authors of the eight best essays will be able to attend the World Cancer Leaders' Summit in Istanbul in November with all reasonable travel and accommodation costs covered. Authors of the fifteen best essays will see them published in a booklet to be distributed at the Summit.
