Early Cancer Institute


We are proud of our achievements and the people working together to find cancer sooner.

The Early Cancer Institute is the first physical institute in the UK dedicated to understanding early cancer. Our research focusses on cancers that are hard to treat and as such have very poor outcomes, including lung, pancreas, oesophagus and liver cancers, and acute myeloid leukaemia. Outcomes for these cancers have changed little over the past few years. We hope to change this with our world-leading research projects.

Many of our experts from across the University and beyond have been recognised for their dedication and pioneering research.
