We have now moved into the new North West Cancer Research Centre
We have finally moved into the new North West Cancer Research Centre at 200 London Road. All operations and staff have now moved over and we can still be contacted through the usual media. Any post heading to Oxford Street will be re-directed to the new centre as will all calls.
Our last year research grants totaled over £2 million and our chairman Michael Potts believes that the closer link with the University of Liverpool will raise the charity's profile among leading businesses and academics and bring it closer to world-class research scientists.
He said: "We are delighted that the University of Liverpool has seen the advantages of reinforcing its links with us and our vital financial support to the Centre to arrive at a partnership agreement. We also have a successful Research Institute at the University of Bangor as well as a longstanding association with Lancaster University, where we are providing valued financial support for cancer research.
"Moving into such a historic and well known building will better position us not just with the University but with the business community and wider public. It also means we become part of the city's burgeoning Knowledge Quarter and will benefit by association not just with the University of Liverpool but with Liverpool John Moores University, The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, the new Royal Liverpool University Teaching Hospital and the planned bio-campus and Science Parks. This is exactly the environment in which we belong."
The Centre will provide a hub for research into the causes and treatment of cancer, making in roads into our understanding of disease and how to tackle it.
“It will enable the translation of breakthroughs into real patient benefit, by working closely with the world class facilities at the University, and with the region’s Trusts to develop new treatments and therapeutic targets. We will also develop outreach and educational activities with Liverpool City Council and the public, aimed at prevention and awareness.
“With the North West having some of the highest incidences of cancer in the whole country, it is absolutely critical that we continue to fund innovative and effective ways to deal with the problem. Charities like NWCR have the scale and influence to help us in this mission."
