Our mission is to improve patient care through the development of:

  • Biomarkers for prognosis, prediction and markers of response;
  • Biologically determined targeted therapies.

The Centre for Cancer Research & Cell Biology (CCRCB) at Queen's University Belfast is a cross-Faculty, interdisciplinary research centre with over 300 clinical and basic researchers from across the world and is committed to the highest quality of research excellence. To achieve our mission we are pursuing the highest quality clinical and basic science research programmes. The hallmark of our research programme is a close, collaborative interaction between clinical and laboratory research experts that ultimately enhances the quality and scope of our integrated basic and clinical research programmes in cancer as well as other diseases.

This is facilitated by a Clinical Research Forum which reinforces the close engagement between the CCRCB and the Clinical Cancer Centre.
