Graduate Admissions

2 courses offered in the MRC Cancer Unit

The MRC Cancer Unit is based within the Hutchison/MRC Research Centre - a state-of-the-art cancer research facility.  The Unit provides a world-class environment for academic and clinical research and an excellent education and training programme for prospective students.

Our mission is to study the earliest steps in the emergence of cancer, particularly epithelial cancers, and translate this knowledge to clinical application for the benefit of patients.  Our focus is (a) to improve the early detection of cancer, (b) to help identify individuals who are most at risk of developing cancer, and (c) to create more effective strategies for intervention.

We pride ourselves as being a dedicated Unit that provides excellent facilities and a unique multi-disciplinary environment that enables the best possible training for the next generation of world-class researchers.
