We make a powerful contribution to understanding how genetic abnormalities within cancer cells lead to disease. Through Birmingham’s Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Unit- one of Europe’s leading clinical trials unit- we use this information to design and rigorously assess new and proven cancer treatments. In so doing, we will play a significant role in accelerating the ultimate control of cancer.

A faster and more accurate method of identifying which of an individual's genes are associated with particular symptoms has been developed by a team of researchers from the UK and Saudi Arabia. This new approach could enable scientists to take advantage of recent developments in genome sequencing to improve diagnosis and potential treatment options.
