Oxford University's work on precision cancer medicine has received a significant boost after Cancer Research UK announced that it would give the existing Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre Major Centre status and increase funding for research in the city.
Oxford is one of the first to gain Major Centre status, receiving an extra £5 million from Cancer Research UK over two years. The Centre will act as a vital research hub for a network of similar centres, drawing together expertise, encouraging collaborative research, and bridging the gap between innovative laboratory work and benefits for patients.
