The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust is the only UK charity solely dedicated to helping families and individuals affected by retinoblastoma (Rb), a rare form of eye cancer found in babies and young children. We have three strategic goals: to provide lifelong support to all those affected by retinoblastoma; to raise awareness to aid early diagnosis; and to fund research into prevention and treatment, thereby improving the future experience of anyone affected by retinoblastoma.
Our research programme is guided by our Scientific Advisory Committee (a group of experts from fields related to retinoblastoma, as well as three lay members), who volunteer their time to help us achieve our goal of funding quality, world-class research which will make a difference to families and individuals affected by retinoblastoma.
We are currently looking for an individual, who has experience in research to take over as Chair of the SAC. Due to the broad range of studies funded by CHECT this research experience could be in clinical research, laboratory science or applied health research.
