Our research infrastructure
Our long-term investment in state-of-the-art facilities has helped to create a thriving network of research at 90 institutions in more than 40 towns and cities across the UK.
At CRUK we recognise the crucial role that infrastructure plays in creating a dynamic and responsive research environment. Our infrastructure provides capabilities across the full breadth of cancer research and the translational pipeline, from basic biology research through to the delivery of late-phase clinical trials.
Thanks to this advanced infrastructure, and the interface it creates with the NHS, more than 1 in 5 adult cancer patients in the UK take part in a clinical trial – a higher proportion than anywhere else in the world.
