Recent Highlights

In a momentous month for cancer research in Manchester, we celebrated the opening of our new research building and saw the award of £5 million to create a Cancer Research UK Major Centre.

We held a week of events from 15-20 June, marking completion of the three year, £28.5 million project to construct state-of-the-art facilities to allow expansion of laboratory studies into cancer biology. Research in the new building will be focused on driving forward the development of more personalised treatments for cancer patients.

Cancer Research UK’s announcement of additional funding for research in Manchester recognises the achievements, expertise and ambition of researchers across our partner organisations and the strength of working in partnership.
