About Us

The Cancer Research UK Glasgow Centre was established in late 2010 with a vision of bringing together scientists and clinicians to develop the very best in cancer research, drug discovery and patient care. We are focusing our research efforts on the cancers in which we have considerable strengths (Pancreas, Colorectal and Leukaemias) as well as on those where we are building greater expertise (Prostate, Ovarian and Brain). We are developing teams within each of these areas that have input from a number of different disciplines, from basic biology and chemistry through to clinical trials and surgery. We also work with other Centres across the Cancer Research UK network where appropriate.

The Centre encompasses a number of partner organisations and its activities are overseen and coordinated by a Governance Board, chaired by Professor Iain McInnes, and an Operations Board, chaired by Professor Gareth Inman. More details of our partners and our Governance and Operations Boards can be found in the menu bar opposite.
