Manchester to become new Cancer Research UK Major Centre


Date: 26/06/2015

Cancer Research UK has announced a further investment of £5 million in Manchester to help transform personalised medicine for cancer treatment and follows last week’s launch of the new cancer research building in Manchester.

The Cancer Research UK Manchester Centre is one of the first of CRUK’s Centres to gain Major Centre status, and in doing so will receive an extra £5 million over two years. The Centre will act as a vital research hub for the Cancer Research UK centre network, drawing together expertise, encouraging collaborative research, and bridging the gap between innovative laboratory work and benefits for patients.

The Centre benefits from a strong partnership with The University of Manchester and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. It is a leading cancer research institute within The University of Manchester, core funded by Cancer Research UK.
