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.
