Aims of the Cancer Research Centre

The Warwick Cancer Research Centre is a unique and inter-disciplinary research centre in the UK Midlands, where we fuse cancer clinical trials with clinical services.

Working closely with the Warwick Clinical Trials Unit, our researchers are active across local hospitals including University Hospitals Birmingham (UHB) and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW).

Our Aims

The Centre was established in 2016 with the purpose of providing a focus for cancer research across Warwick and enhancing the visibility and profile of this activity. This has been reviewed and renewed for three years from July 2019.

The main aims of the Centre are:

1. To link existing areas of cancer research at Warwick both inside and outside the Medical School and use this to explore new funding opportunities

2. To use the Centre as base to expand cancer research at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire

3. To forge new collaborations, in particular with University Hospitals Birmingham, Birmingham Children's Hospital, University of Birmingham and also the regional/national Clinical Research Networks

4. To establish a base for fundraising to support cancer research by raising the profile of the Centre both locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Our Research

We have an incredible number of researchers from across Warwick in a huge number of fields. Of particular interest in this regard is the work in mathematics and systems biology, medical chemistry as well as in bio-sciences.
