The Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute (CRUK CI) aims to bring the scientific strengths of Cambridge to bear on practical questions of cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

The Institute focuses specifically on the practical application of high-quality basic research, forming a bridge between the world-class science of the University of Cambridge and its environment, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and other institutes and departments on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

Opened in 2007, the Institute is now home to 23 Research Groups and 430 members of staff including over 250 scientists. In 2013 the CRUK CI became part of the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine.
