Department of Oncology



Cambridge has become an internationally recognised centre for cancer research in the United Kingdom due to the development of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, the research and academic excellence of the University and an increase in the number of biotechnology companies.

Our members are based in 11 locations, 9 on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, and 2 offsite at Strangeways Research Laboratory, close to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in Hinxton, a few miles south of Cambridge. For further information please see 'Our Sites'.

Being located across multiple sites affords our members ready access to vital tissue samples, state-of-the-art clinical facilities and research equipment. It also provides the opportunity to forge collaborations with world class clinicians and laboratory scientists.
