Cancer Research at Bath

Our mission is to improve cancer patient outcomes by fostering links between Bath’s scientists and clinicians.

What we do

One of our key aims is to aid and strengthen the collaboration between researchers at the University of Bath and Royal United Hospitals (RUH) Bath. Together, we seek to develop novel treatments and diagnostic strategies, and to maximise patient benefit. We provide training and funding for students and early career researchers, empowering them to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Through patient engagement and public events, we want to promote awareness of cancer research, our expertise and facilities across the Bath region. Our scientific meetings facilitate links and partnerships with fundraisers and industry.
