About The Cancer Researcher

The Cancer Researcher is an online-only magazine for the cancer research community from the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR). We publish inspiring and insightful content on topics that are of interest to cancer researchers across the world. We aim to engage, inspire and inform. Summaries of the latest research news, practical tips, light-hearted tales of experiments gone wrong, advice from top scientists – we’ll publish whatever researchers want to read. We also invite content submissions from cancer researchers who have an interest in science communication, writing and blogging, to make The Cancer Researcher truly collaborative – just like great science. AstraZeneca has provided a sponsorship grant towards this independent Programme.


When you write for The Cancer Researcher, these guidelines are what we believe make the ideal article/blog:

  • Include your name, job title, institute/affiliation, and a short 50-75 word summary about yourself and your research
  • We welcome articles written jointly by several lab members
