Capitalising on a single biomedical campus comprising the University of Birmingham and key clinical partners including University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, the Cancer Research UK Birmingham Centre builds on Birmingham’s integrated scientific and clinical research programmes and aligned clinical trials, which contribute to a cancer research portfolio of ~£25 million per year.
The Cancer Research UK Birmingham Centre establishes Birmingham as one of the UK’s premier sites for cancer research, and provides an opportunity to deliver internationally significant translational cancer science. Our mission is to catalyse translationally aligned fundamental discovery science in oncology, and novel therapeutic developments originating from this research, contributing to Cancer Research UK’s strategic target of increasing cancer survival rates from 50% to 75% within the next 10 years. Linked strategically with Birmingham’s Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre and UoB’s Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Unit (CRCTU), the Centre forms part of a vibrant pathway for genuine bench-to-business-bedside cancer research.
