A new cancer centre has opened in Oxford to bring together the city’s different research institutions.
The building on Roosevelt Drive is part of a network of 16 units across the country funded by Cancer Research UK.
This centre, which will link the University of Oxford, Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust and the charity, will cost £2.8m in the first year.
Professor Gillies McKenna, head of the Department of Oncology at the University of Oxford, is interviewed about the new Cancer Research Centre. He said: ‘The key aim of this centre is to create a partnership between Cancer Research UK, Oxford University and the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals Trust to pool their resources to allow translational research to occur more quickly, to bring new discoveries in cancer more quickly to the benefit of our patients.’
