Work with us — CRUK–AstraZeneca Antibody Alliance Laboratory

If your research has identified novel biological insights or molecular targets for antibody discovery, we'd love to work with you to help translate your research.

As part of a multidisciplinary team alongside our experts, you'll have the opportunity to help steer a project with impact for cancer patients, co-author on publications and patents, and bring new skills back to your lab.
