Recent Highlights

Teamwork and collaboration have enabled us to recently make some important breakthroughs that will impact cancer patients.

Our researchers – from The Christie and The University of Manchester - have shown that it's possible to spare some patients with rectal cancer from major surgery.

Manchester scientists, in conjunction with The Institute of Cancer Research in London, have developed a new imaging test that could enable doctors to identify more dangerous tumours before they spread around the body – and tailor treatment accordingly.
