Cambridge

UK map showing CambridgeTogether with the University of Cambridge and many generous donors, we opened the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute in 2007. The Institute, at the Addenbrooke’s Hospital site, is one of the largest cancer research facilities in Europe.

Cancer Research UK has given substantial funding to equip the Institute and provides around £20 million each year to support research at this state-of-the-art facility.

 

The Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, which is directed by Prof Simon Tavaré, houses more than 270 scientists in 19 research groups. The institute brings together doctors and scientists with a broad range of expertise to help beat cancer. More than 4,000 cancer patients pass through the doors of Addenbrooke’s Hospital every year. Being located on the site of a major cancer hospital will ensure that laboratory advances are translated into tangible benefits for patients as quickly as possible.

 

Cambridge is also the home of one of our Cancer Research UK Centres. The Cambridge Cancer Centre brings together leading scientists, doctors and nurses from across the city to lead improvements in cancer diagnosis and treatment. In particular, researchers are building on their expertise in breast, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, oesophageal, blood and prostate cancers. The Centre also focuses on developing new ways to detect cancer using cutting-edge imaging techniques.

Below are some of the highlights of our research in Cambridge. Visit MyProjects to donate directly to our research in the city.
