In January 2006, the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute joined forces with the Christie Hospital NHS Trust and the University of Manchester to form the Manchester Cancer Research Centre.

The Centre is a unique partnership, which plans to double research activity in the city over the next few years. It will create outstanding facilities where doctors and scientists can work closely together, allowing scientific advances to be turned into benefits for people with cancer faster.

By 2015, the Centre aims to be one of the world’s leading cancer research institutes.

The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute

The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute is based at The Christie in Manchester. It is one of our five institutes, playing a key role in our world-class research. The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute employs over 200 researchers who are dedicated to helping fight cancer.

Under the leadership of Professor Richard Marais the Institute is home to 14 research teams with a wide range of research interests including:

  • discovering the causes of drug resistance in people with bowel cancer
  • identifying new drug targets for leukaemia so we can treat people with the disease more effectively
  • studying the molecular processes that drive the growth and spread of cancer cells.

Our Children's Cancer Trials Team co-ordinates groundbreaking trials in 21 centres across the UK and Ireland, including the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. These trials bring cutting-edge science from the lab to the bedside, making innovative new treatments available to children with cancer.

Below are some of the highlights of our research in Manchester.
