The Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) was formed in 2006 by The University of Manchester, Cancer Research UK and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.  It has since been established as the cancer research arm of the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), which is a strategic partnership between the University and six NHS Trusts across Greater Manchester.  

The MCRC brings together basic, translational and clinical researchers to provide a more integrated approach, which is essential to turn findings in the laboratory into better, more effective treatments for cancer patients.  The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute is at the heart of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre.

Professor Nic Jones was the inaugural Director of the Centre until August 2017 when the Directorship was taken up by Professor Rob Bristow, one of the world’s leading prostate cancer experts.
