About Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute
The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (www.cruk.manchester.ac.uk), an Institute of The University of Manchester (www.manchester.ac.uk), is a world-leading centre for excellence in cancer research. The Institute is core funded by Cancer Research UK (www.cancerresearchuk.org), the largest independent cancer research organisation in the world. We are currently situated at The Oglesby Cancer Research Building in South Manchester and at the internationally-renowned life sciences campus at Alderley Park in Cheshire England, 15 miles from Manchester, a vibrant and dynamic city surrounded by beautiful countryside.
We are partnered with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust (adjacent to the CRUK MI Paterson Building) in South Manchester (www.christie.nhs.uk), one of the largest cancer treatment centres in Europe. These factors combine to provide an exceptional environment in which to pursue basic, translational and clinical research programmes.
The Drug Discovery Unit employs state-of-the-art facilities directed toward the discovery of novel, clinically relevant treatments for a variety of different cancer types. Details of the Unit itself can be found at (http://www.cruk.manchester.ac.uk/Research/CRUK-MI-Groups/Drug-Discovery/Home).
