Research 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 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 provides leadership of the Birmingham Cancer Research UK Centre bringing together other major cancer research programmes from across the University, for example in Angiogenesis, Cancer Epidemiology, Inflammation and Stratified Medicine.
