The Manchester Cancer Research Centre
The Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) brings together the expertise, ambition and resources of partner organisations - all of which already hold formidable individual reputations in the fields of cancer treatment and clinical research.
Taking a research approach that goes from bench to bedside, we integrate a diverse range of research themes to identify and understand the processes that are intrinsic to cancer development (tumourigenesis). The talented scientists and clinicians at the MCRC develop collaborative and integrated research programmes that translate an improved understanding of cancer and cancer processes at a fundamental level to applied clinical strategies for patients. The demarcations between different research groups are fluid, allowing cross-fertilisation and interaction between common themes to achieve clinically relevant options for patient care.
The establishment and availability of biological samples from our regional Tissue Biobank allows MCRC researchers access to source material for our range of key research initiatives. Our wide-ranging research themes encompass basic, translational and clinical research, and include:
- Radiation-related research
- Haematological oncology research
- Studies on specific tumours
