The Department’s world-leading scientific research and specialist facilities provide essential support, expertise and knowledge to our research programmes. They afford the added value of partnership and expert advice in developing experiments, designing equipment, maintaining cutting edge technology and providing clinical support. We have invested heavily in these facilities to underpin the expanding Department and plug the gaps in support for our key areas of focus in cancer research. We also have strong links with other parts of the University and also tap into local expertise in neighbouring University facilities such as the Target Discovery Institute.
