Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute

Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute

The Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute aims to bring the scientific strengths of Cambridge to bear on practical questions of cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention. The Institute focuses specifically on the practical application of high-quality basic research.

Established in 2007, the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute was the first major new cancer research centre in the UK for over 50 years.

Research in the Institute focuses primarily on Tumour Ecology and Evolution, with investigations across four main areas:

  • Basic research into the cellular and molecular biology of cancer.
  • Research in molecular imaging, genomics, bioinformatics and computational biology.
  • Research focused on specific cancers, which form a link between laboratory and clinic.
  • Clinical investigations including experimental medicine clinical trials and, in the longer term, population-based studies in screening and prevention.

The Institute’s state-of-the-art core facilities play a key role in catalysing science, not only within the Institute, but across Cambridge through multiple collaborations. Each facility provides equipment, support and training as well as the capacity to develop bespoke technologies. The core funding provided by Cancer Research UK allows  Group Leaders the freedom to expand their programme of work and follow innovative new ideas.
