CRUK-MEDI Alliance Laboratory
The Cancer Research UK–MedImmune Alliance Laboratory helps you translate your novel research into therapeutic and diagnostic antibodies.
The laboratory brings together CRUK’s cancer biology expertise with the world-class antibody engineering technology of MedImmune, the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca.
Scientists from both organisations work side by side in the joint laboratory in Cambridge, sharing knowledge and expertise to accelerate the discovery and development of novel biologics to treat and diagnose cancer.
- To maximise cancer patient benefit
- To run a collaborative research laboratory
- To actively engage the oncology research community
- To partner closely with investigators
We invite researchers to apply to access this unique laboratory and expertise, to develop novel therapeutic and diagnostic antibodies. We are seeking promising new insights from novel biology through to well-validated targets, to underpin our discovery activities.
The laboratory provides researchers with a fantastic opportunity to:
- turn your concept into a drug and bring benefit to cancer patients
- secure resources and funding to conduct focused research on your target
- be a key member of a multidisciplinary drug discovery team
- gain insight and understanding of leading biotherapeutic drug discovery technologies
- author on both research articles and patents
If you have any further questions about the laboratory or whether your project is eligible, please contact the team at AllianceLab@cancer.org.uk or speak to your Commercial Partnerships Business Manager.
