Why was Oxford Cancer established?
Oxford Cancer is a natural evolution of the existing Centre. It will serve to establish a University-wide strategy and help coordinate and communicate with Oxford cancer researchers, independent of funding body. As well as facilitate research within Oxford in line with strategic goals that are unique and specific to Oxford’s cancer research strengths.
There are many individuals who consider themselves cancer researchers, or contributors to cancer research, across Oxford. The Oxford Cancer existing membership has over 900 academics between the University and OUH, and Oxford Cancer hopes to provide a unified hub for research facilitation and support.
