Barts Cancer Institute
Barts Cancer Institute has a long tradition of pioneering research and innovation. Many surgical procedures were first discovered here as well as the use of radiotherapy to treat cancer.
By investing in and undertaking world-class research, we aim to prevent cancer and develop better diagnostic techniques and treatments. This will ultimately increase patient survival and enhance the quality of life for those with long-term disease.
A wide range of research is currently underway and includes:
Therapeutic and diagnostic target identification and validation in both haematological and solid malignancies
Clinical trials exploring new therapies
The development of novel molecular approaches for diagnosis
Classification and treatment of human cancers
Investigations into the regulation of tumour spread and host anti-tumour responses
