The Christie is one of Europe's experimental
cancer medicine centres, and an international leader in research
and development. Our Research and Development Division was first
formed in January 2008 and employs over 170 dedicated research
staff, including; Research Nurses, Clinical Trial administration
staff and the Research and Development core administration
Whilst our Research and Development Division is separate from
our other service divisions, all our patients participating in
clinical trails are supported by those service departments as well
as specialist research facilities.
Our research portfolio includes a range of drug trials that
include; phases I, II and III trials, and combination studies where
radiotherapy is given in conjunction with drug treatments.
This groundbreaking research is made possible through the
support of University facilities, and our specialist research
facilities that include; the Clinical trials unit within the Oak
Road Treatment Centre, the WADE Radiotherapy Research Centre and
the Manchester Cancer Research Centre tissue Biobank.
