Established in 2014, we are delighted to have been chosen as Cancer Research UK’s first Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence. The establishment of the CRUK Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence at Manchester and UCL brings together a unique range of internationally renowned scientists and clinicians within the field of lung cancer research. By building on this existing foundation, we will create an environment that catalyses imaginative and innovative lung cancer research.
The Centre combines expertise in basic, translational and clinical research, which is focused around eight complementary and interacting themes: Basic Science, Immunology, Drug Discovery, Early Detection and Pre-Invasive Disease, Tumour Evolution and Heterogeneity, Biomarkers, Clinical Trials and Radiation Biology/Radiotherapy Trials.
We are committed to delivering an outstanding lung cancer training programme and building a world class centre of excellence in lung cancer research.
The establishment of the CRUK Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence at Manchester and UCL recognises our strong track record, expertise and ambition in all aspects of lung cancer research. By working together, we have a real and exciting opportunity to support advances in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care of lung cancer; with our ultimate aim to improve outcomes for lung cancer patients.
