Research and innovation

Delivering world-class cancer research is at the heart of what we do at The Christie. Developing new treatments to improve outcomes for patients is one of our key priorities. 

We lead research into innovative techniques such as using DNA to personalise treatment and to help people’s immune systems fight cancer. There are more than 650 clinical research studies and trials running here at any given time.

We have internationally recognised expertise in cancer research. Our research makes a difference for people living with cancer and their friends and families.

Our cancer research expertise at The Christie includes:

  • running research studies and trials across all types of cancer 
  • delivering the highest quality clinical trials
  • identifying appropriate research participants and involving them in the right research studies
  • providing an excellent service and patient support
