Research in the School of Cancer Sciences


Cancer research at University of BirminghamResearch within the School of Cancer Sciences offers unparalleled opportunities for both basic and translational research on human cancer. The School delivers world-class research on both model organisms and humans, translating results into new treatments in our world-leading Clinical Trials Unit.

All of this is underpinned by a research infrastructure which includes centralised tissue banking in the Human Biomaterials Resource Centre as well as access to cutting edge facilities and technologies in the College Technology Hub.  

We are also committed to supporting early career researchers to become leaders in the field through the Postdoctoral/Early Researcher Career Development and Training Scheme (PERCAT).

The School of Cancer Sciences contributes to major research programmes across the University, for example in Angiogenesis, Cancer Epidemiology, Inflammation and Stratified Medicine.
