The John van Geest Cancer Research Centre
NTU is widely recognised for the quality of its cancer research and it has been identified as being of global significance. Nottingham has been a focus of cancer research for over 40 years and our centre cements that legacy.
In 2008 the University received a major award (£7.65 million) to create the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre which provides the University's world-class team of cancer research scientists with an outstanding purpose-built environment for their research. The Centre had its official opening in November 2010.
At NTU, scientists within the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre are working on ways to beat cancer, with a focus on breast and prostate cancers although the research does have implications for the treatment and prevention of other forms of cancer. The research is focused in two main areas: the discovery of cancer biomarkers for the diagnosis and monitoring of cancer progression; and the development of cancer vaccines.
