Global bid to bring world's leading cancer minds to Manchester, UK
Date:7/10/2013

A global recruitment drive to bring 20 of the world's best cancer experts and their teams to Manchester, in the United Kingdom, is now underway.

Specialist cancer centre The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and The University of Manchester are jointly funding the 30 million plan as part of their role in the Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC).

The recruitment bid will bring 20 top-flight academics and their teams of experts to the city. In total it will attract 100 new staff with clinical, research and teaching expertise in screening and prevention; lung cancer; radiotherapy; haematological oncology; women's cancer; melanoma and personalised cancer therapy.

Around 13 of the academic posts and their associated teams will have a clinical base within The Christie as well as a university role. The remaining science roles will be based within the MCRC - a unique collaboration between The Christie, The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK (CR-UK). The majority of these posts will be based in a custom-built facility due to open in 2014, opposite The Christie in south Manchester. The flagship building has been designed to bring research into cancer biology, drug discovery and clinical trials together. Some posts will also be based in the neighbouring CR-UK Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, part of The University of Manchester.

All new posts are also part of a series of large-scale initiatives in health care and health science being driven by the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) which is a partnership of six of Greater Manchester's NHS Trusts, including The Christie, and The University of Manchester. The partnership prioritises key areas of health within Greater Manchester, one of which is cancer. The package of support will fund cancer leaders and their teams for five years as well as providing some laboratory set-up costs and materials to enable the teams to carry out experiments.
