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.

Bioanalysis core

Bioanalysis

Supporting academic research within and outside of the university, we provide specialist analytical chemistry support in the majority through HPLC-MS or HPLC-MS-MS techniques with additional UV-visible absorbance and fluorescence detection abilities.

Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics

We provide expertise in computational biology ranging from applied statistics to computational and functional genomics.

Early phase clinical trials unit

Early Phase Clinical Trials Unit

The Early Phase Clinical Trials Unit (EPCTU) aims to support the translation of research findings in to clinical practice.

Mechanical workshop

Mechanical Workshop

The Mechanical Workshop delivers an on-site fabrication facility for custom-made, precision mechanical items for use in scientific research.

Pre clinical imaging

Pre-Clinical Imaging

The Imaging SRF provides routine technical support services and operates a programme of advanced method development in order to optimise the use of the imaging facility.

Microscopy

Microscopy

The Microscopy SRF aims to provide research groups with imaging technologies to investigate cellular processes both in vitro and in vivo.

Oncology clinical trials office octo

Oncology Clinical Trials Office (OCTO)

The Oncology Clinical Trials Office (OCTO) provides clinical trial management support to investigators across the CRUK Oxford Centre to manage trials from concept to completion.

Pet radiochemistry and radiopharmacy prox

PET Radiochemistry and Radiopharmacy (PROx)

The PET Radiochemistry and Radiopharmacy core supports radiochemistry-dependent research programmes and provide GMP-grade PET radiopharmaceuticals for clinical trials.

Radiation biophysics

Radiation Biophysics

The Radiation Biophysics Facility develops and supports a unique range of radiation resources and techniques along with providing associated expertise.

Cytometry facs

Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry determines the 'what', the 'where' and the 'how much' of material in cells, and is an important step in testing effects of drug interventions.

Proteomics

Proteomics

Proteomics studies proteins on a large scale. Proteins are vital to living organisms and their multi-functional characteristics act as potential targets for drug therapies. Therefore, proteomics can be used for biomarker and target discovery, drug profiling and target validation.

Live tissue facility

Live Tissue Facility

The Live Tissue Facility is designed to boost the translational impact of oncological research without users having to independently create ethics applications and collection logistics.
