The Cancer Research UK Centres initiative is one of our highest priority strategic initiatives and it plays a major part in our five-year research strategy. The vision of the initiative is to develop long-term, sustainable centres of excellence in cancer, delivering world-class research, improved patient care and greater local engagement.
The Cancer Research UK Centres are partnerships working on a local level with universities, NHS Trusts, cancer networks and other charities, and on a national level with government and industry. The Centres will facilitate team work between patients and professionals, fundraisers and researchers.
We hope that these partnerships will help deliver our 2020 goals and to achieve the greatest impact in the global fight against cancer.
The network stretches across the UK, and we currently have 18 Centres located in cities with international reputations for high-quality cancer research. Use our interactive map to find your nearest Centre.
