In 2017, tragedy struck when a fire severely damaged our Paterson research building. Fortunately, no-one was hurt, but 300 of our world-leading scientists and researchers moved to temporary facilities in Alderley Park 13 miles away.
While this caused disruption, research thankfully continued.
A new world class transformational research facility on the site of the Paterson building is now being built. And with your help, we could progress research at a speed and scale never seen before in the North West.
Finding better, kinder treatments sooner
In the world of cancer research, collaboration is vital. We will have some of the most creative and skilled minds in cancer research working in our new research building. This means our experts can understand complex cancers and drive forward better patient outcomes. And patients can then benefit from those advances, faster.
With our partners The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK, we aim to double the number of patients offered access to a clinical trial as part of their cancer treatment by 2030.
A donation today will help turn this plan into reality and bring new hope to patients across the North West. Donate using the form below and help create a beacon of hope for cancer patients.
