CRUK Imperial Centre and Imperial ECMC

CRUK Imperial and Imperial ECMC

The CRUK Centre and ECMC were successfully renewed for a further five years under the leadership of Professor Ara Darzi. This application represents a change in strategy and focus for the CRUK Imperial Centre, reflecting its development towards becoming a national hub for multidisciplinary investigators.  The research strategy will be delivered through two new themes: Reducing the Burden of Cancer (Lead: Prof Zoltan Takats) and Increasing the Precision of Cancer Interventions (Lead: Prof Dan Elson).  The CRUK Imperial Centre has a strong identity in technological innovation for cancer research and together with the Imperial ECMC (Leads: Prof Eric Aboagye and Michael Seckl), are working to translate innovation into improved diagnosis and treatment for people with cancer.
