Cancer Research UK Glasgow Centre

The CRUK Glasgow Centre is funded by Cancer Research UK and is a partnership between University of Glasgow, the CRUK Beatson Institute, the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde.

The Centre was established in late 2010 with a vision of bringing together scientists and clinicians to develop the very best in cancer research, drug discovery and patient care. In particular, we are focusing our research efforts on the cancers in which we have considerable strengths (Pancreas, Colorectal and Leukaemias) as well as on those where we are building greater expertise (Liver and Mesothelioma). We have developed teams within each of these areas that have input from a number of different disciplines, from basic biology and chemistry through to clinical trials and surgery, and also work with other Centres across the CRUK network where appropriate.

The Centre has an ambition to establish the infrastructure necessary to allow each of our cancer teams to develop a stratified medicine programme that will ultimately help to guide the treatment of patients on a much more individual basis. We are using pancreas cancer, where we have particular experience, as the paradigm for this work as we extend it into other cancer types. This investment will provide a critical platform of technical expertise and technology to support teams across the Centre, enabling them to develop and deliver new treatment options for cancer patients.
