About the School of Cancer Sciences

“Working to accelerate the control of cancer” 

The School of Cancer Sciences is one of the world’s premier translational cancer research institutes.  Underpinned by excellent basic science across the University campus, we work with many clinical partners to improve the outlook for cancer patients. 

Our portfolio is broad and ranges from leading research in NMR spectroscopy through to large clinical trials that change the standard of care in diseases such as breast cancer. We were the first Cancer Research UK Centre and have been designated as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ by Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.  

We are also committed to our educational programmes and train the young doctors and scientists of the future as well as hosting postgraduate students from around the world.  

Combining the principles of clinical care, research and education, we are proud to make an important contribution to one of the major challenges of our generation.
