Course summary

A broad range of research interests provides for world-class research in cancer biology, supported by world-class clinical research into several major types of cancer.

Overview

Fundamental cancer research is aimed at providing the discoveries that can lead to new avenues of research that can ultimately be translated into patient benefits.

Scientific laboratory research work in the department is performed in an environment that has a wealth of clinical expertise and research which ensures that basic scientific research is always performed with insights of relevance to patients provided by leading clinical teams and an awareness of detailed clinical issues.

Our research interests include:

Fundamental research into the mechanisms leading to cancer development and progression with the aim of understanding the processes that lead to cancer development and which constitute potential therapeutic targets
Clinical studies conducted with the intent to advance therapies to the clinic or develop principles for application of therapeutics to human disease (part of the remit of the Cancer Research UK Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre)
Investigations in humans and human materials which define the biology of disease and provide the scientific foundation for the development of new or improved therapies for human disease
Translational research taking advantage of new and on-going clinical trials in cancer often of novel and modifications of existing therapies and also to develop novel predictive and prognostic biomarkers.
