Manchester Cancer Research Centre

Female scientist looking down a microscopeThe Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) brings together scientists, doctors and nurses from across Greater Manchester. The Centre harnesses existing strengths in cancer research, leading to improvements in treatment that will benefit patients in the city and beyond.

The Centre is a partnership between Cancer Research UK, The University of Manchester (which includes the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, a Cancer Research UK Institute) and the Christie NHS Foundation Trust.

To take this centre of excellence to the next level we are constructing a new research facility, adjacent to The Christie. This will drive research into personalised cancer treatments forward.

The MCRC has remarkable potential to be at the forefront of revolutionising the way that cancer is treated in the future. To achieve this, we must continue to attract more of the very best researchers to the city. We can only do this if we provide world-class spaces, environments and technologies by providing this new facility.
