The role of the Clinical Translation Study Coordinator will act as the link between the Division of Breast Cancer Research at The Institute of Cancer Research, The Breast Cancer Now Research Centre at The Institute of Cancer Research, the Clinical Breast teams in the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Breast Unit patients and biobank. The role ensures that appropriate patients and associated samples are recruited from the Royal Marsden biobanks and specific translational medicine clinical studies, in line with good clinical practice and Institute of Cancer Research and Royal Marsden Hospital standard operating procedures.
The post-holder must be able to manage several complex studies at the same time and will be key to communication within clinical and non-clinical study teams.
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate who enjoys working in a multidisciplinary environment as part of a team that links clinical and laboratory research.
You must possess a degree in life sciences or nursing (or equivalent) and have comprehensive knowledge of clinical research including GCP (EU Directive 2001/20/EC and GCP Directive 2005/28/EC) and Research Governance.
The Clinical Translation Study Coordinator will be linked to the Patient Derived Models Facility, which derives and facilitates the use of patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models of breast cancer, as well as in vitro 3D organoid models (patient-derived organoids; PDO) and PDX-derived organoids (PDXO). The role will also link the clinical breast cancer research teams to the molecular pathology and blood and tissue biomarker research teams at the Breast Cancer Now Research Centre.
The Breast Cancer Now Research Centre is the first centre in the UK entirely devoted to breast cancer research, with the goal to advance research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. The Centre is directed by Professor Andrew Tutt and is located in state-of-the-art laboratory space, with excellent core facilities and funding.
