Organisation profile

The Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) is a unique partnership founded in 2006 by The University of Manchester, Cancer Research UK, and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.

The MCRC aims to unite science and clinical care by leveraging our synergistic, team-building experience, to break down research silos and enable interdisciplinary and inter-organisational collaboration. We are driving a consistent and integrated strategy for cancer research and innovation in Manchester to co-ordinate research activities, break down research silos, and leverage the top minds and exceptional laboratory and clinical facilities.

As a world-leading cancer research partnership, we have influenced clinical practice in the UK and across the world, changing the lives of people affected by cancer across multiple disease sites and research themes, including:

  • Cancer biomarker sciences and academic pathology
  • Global genomics
  • Radiotherapy and radiobiology
  • Cancer early detection
  • Advanced materials
  • Ethical AI and targeted clinical trials
  • Digital transformation and cancer research

Underpinning our research strengths are scientists. We empower the next generation of cancer leaders, and champion cross discipline science that offers individuals the opportunities to excel and become the future cancer research leaders. Through uniting the best and brightest academic minds with the world-class, state-of-the-art facilities in Manchester, we will create a future free from the burden of cancer.

You can find an overview of all cancer research themes and activities as well as opportunities for researchers on the MCRC website.
