About the Centre

One of the main goals of the North West Cancer Research Centre - University of Liverpool (NWCR Centre - UoL) is to reduce the impact of cancers across the Region.

We will achieve this through innovative world-class research into detecting, treating and preventing a range of cancer types, and improving the quality of life and palliative care of cancer patients.

We also work with all Regional stakeholders, including local authorities, local Members of Parliament, healthcare academics, Public Health England, the Clinical Networks and commissioners, to inform people about various cancers and, encourage healthier lifestyles, in order to reduce their risk of getting cancer.

We will create a network of Cancer research across NW England and Wales by interacting closely with the NWCR-sponsored centres at the University of Bangor and the University of Lancaster.
