Relocation of the CRUK Manchester Institute is underway

We are excited to announce that our relocation plans are now well underway as we make our move to the new research centre in Withington, Manchester.

Following the handover of the new Paterson Building to the Christie Hospital by the contractors, the relocation of the CRUK Manchester Institute back to the Christie site in Withington is now well underway.  We want to share with you some of the stories from the dedicated teams who are making this move happen, as well as some photographs of their progress.  Check back over the next few weeks as we add more updates and insights.
