The CRUK Manchester Institute seminar series engages world-class researchers across the broad spectrum of cancer research and runs alongside a series of themed seminar programmes in the MCRC, The Christie and across the University of Manchester.

An internal seminar programme from our postdoctoral researchers, students, scientific officers and technical staff also runs on a weekly basis.
