Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre
Director: Professor Mark Middleton
The CRUK Oxford Centre was established in 2010 as a partnership between the University of Oxford, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and Cancer Research UK. The Centre aims to draw on the breadth and depth of fundamental research being undertaken at the University of Oxford and translate it into novel therapeutic strategies which increase cancer cure rates and save and improve people’s lives. The Centre currently comprises over 500 members from more than 25 Departments, Units and Institutes of the University, including the Department of Oncology (from where it is managed), as well as from the NHS Trust. Members work across a range of disciplines and collaborate on a local, national and international scale. The Centre supports the translation of novel ideas and hypothesis into early phase clinical trials to speed up translation from scientific discovery to treatments in patients.
