The cancer theme crosses all Divisions within the Faculty, covering the full spectrum of cancer research, from the molecular events that underpin its development to the management of care of those terminally ill with the disease.

We work closely with the public and other end users to improve the prevention and treatment of cancer. For example, the International Observatory on End of Life Care has close relationships with local health and social care groups within the region while our research on the biology of cancer has been strongly supported by local charity North West Cancer Research, who fund a Research Fellowship in addition to other projects.
