Course Introduction

Description

The Division of Cancer Studies has a multidisciplinary research portfolio that maps onto and spans the entire patient journey. We bring together and are underpinned by core strengths in haematology, haemato-oncology, breast cancer biology, epidemiology, cancer cell biology, gastro-intestinal cancer and oncopolicy. We are fortunate to have access to unique resources such as our Bio-Bank.

The strategic objective of the Division is to foster a culture of innovation in patient care through research excellence. To achieve this we are working towards fully integrated research pathways, breaking down traditional clinical/academic boundaries and drawing together members of the Division and colleagues from our associated Hospital Trusts. This is reflected in the coordinated strategic planning that has laid the foundations for our Integrated Cancer Centre.

There are six Research Sections within the Division:

Cancer Epidemiology and Population Health

Cell Biology and Imaging

GI Cancer

Haemato-oncology

Molecular Haematology

Research Oncology
