Cancer imaging centres to receive funding24th October 2013
Four cancer imaging centres across the UK are to receive £35m funding to develop imaging technologies for cancer research.
The money which comes as part of a new initiative by Cancer Research UK and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council will be spread over five years and will benefit the University of Oxford; the Institute of Cancer Research in London; a centre run jointly by King’s College, London and University College, London. The £35m will be spread over five years builds on an initial investment of £50 million that was made in October 2008.
Scientists, engineers and clinicians will work together to develop new imaging techniques and applications to discover more about how tumours feed and grow and the environment surrounding tumours and molecular and genetic signatures.
