Tackling cancer head-on
OUR CENTRE FOR CANCER RESEARCH AND CELL BIOLOGY (CCRCB) IS CONSIDERED AMONG THE FINEST OF ITS KIND.
Survival rates for cancer in Northern Ireland are now among the best in the UK.
A leading centre, all under one roof
IN 2015, THE WELLCOME-WOLFSON INSTITUTE FOR EXPERIMENTAL MEDICINE OPENED ALONGSIDE THE CCRCB.
This brings together on the same site, in state-of-the-art research facilities, over 1,000 leading scientists and clinicians charting a course from discovery to recovery. Here they are engaging in research seeking to overcome some of the major health problems of our time, including cancer, cystic fibrosis, asthma and multiple sclerosis.
