Established in 2019 as part of a UK-wide network, Cancer Research UK RadNet Manchester is one of three Radiation Research Units. CRUK RadNet Manchester, in collaboration with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, will develop an integrated world-leading radiation oncology programme working towards individualised personalised physical and biological testing based on real-time outcomes and a mechanistic understanding of the tumour microenvironment, immune response, comorbidity and genomics.
Uplifting the RadNet award is an affiliated gift from The Taylor Family Foundation of £4.5 million to improve our understanding and treatment of Head and Neck cancers using proton beam therapy and other advanced radiotherapy and imaging techniques.
