Founded in 1845 as Queen’s College Belfast, we became an independent university in 1908. Today, we are a member of the Russell Group, combining excellence in research and education with a student-centred ethos.

The Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) works with partners around the world developing cancer treatments and pioneering advances in patient care.

Our integrated clinical, translational and basic scientific research programmes address clinically unmet needs.

Our principal objective is to promote evidence-based, innovative research including clinical trials which will underpin improved patient outcomes in high incidence solid tumours of genitourinary, gastrointestinal, breast, lung and ovarian origin, and in specific blood cancers.

Our unifying research theme is to develop translational outputs, in the form of biomarkers and/or novel therapeutic strategies that enable CCRCB to be at the forefront of personalised cancer medicine in these prevalent diseases.
