After a fantastic response to our Research is Beautiful campaign – and a very worthy winner for May – we couldn’t resist showing you a few of our top picks from the rest of May’s entries…


Many thanks to all those who entered images – there were some truly stunning entries.

Don’t forget – the campaign is still open, so help us celebrate and share your perspective, your passion, and your research with us – send your images now!

If you have already entered for June – good luck. If not – there is still time, get those entries in!

Debra Howell, from The University of York. The pictures are from an Open Day held for blood cancer patients at the University of York in October 2023, as part of our Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement. The event was attended by almost 200 patients and their caregivers, family members and friends. Patients, clinical staff and researchers gave presentations and shared their ideas and experiences. As researchers, Open Days with people affected by the cancers we study enables us to learn about issues that are important to them, so we can target our work in this area, to achieve greater impact. It reminds why we do the work we do, and allows us to emphasis the importance of organisations such as CRUK, who make our work possible.

The Research is Beautiful campaign is open to all scientists and support staff involved in cancer research over 18. We are looking for images that showcase your research – from the microcosm to the macrocosm – you and your fellow researchers in action as well as research environments spanning from the lab to research events. Anything you think that captures your work, or your passion for your work is welcome.

To enter, e-mail your photos to [email protected] with a short caption and your contact details. Images should be sent as JPEG files and, ideally, be at least 2000px. Feel free to email this address if you have any questions.

Each month, a panel of CRUK staff will review the submissions and choose the best image(s) that month. Successful entrants will be notified directly and the image(s) will be showcased on Cancer News for Researchers and our social-media platforms X and LinkedIn.

The campaign is open to UK residents aged 18 or over. Please ensure before submitting an entry that you have read the campaign terms and conditions.
