Cambridge Filmworks teams up with the CRUK Cambridge Institute
The Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute 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.
Established in 2007, the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute was the first major new cancer research centre in the UK for over 50 years.
Research in the Institute focuses primarily on Tumour Ecology and Evolution, with investigations across four main areas:
- Basic research into the cellular and molecular biology of cancer.
- Research in molecular imaging, genomics, bioinformatics and computational biology.
- Research focused on specific cancers, which form a link between laboratory and clinic.
- Clinical investigations including experimental medicine clinical trials and, in the longer term, population-based studies in screening and prevention.
The Institute’s state-of-the-art core facilities play a key role in catalysing science, not only within the Institute, but across Cambridge through multiple collaborations. Each facility provides equipment, support and training as well as the capacity to develop bespoke technologies. The core funding provided by Cancer Research UK allows Group Leaders the freedom to expand their programme of work and follow innovative new ideas.
The Institute is now looking for new researchers and graduates to join them at the Biomedical Campus in Cambridge.
Cambridge Filmworks has produced two films highlighting the work of Group Leaders and Graduate Researchers at the CRUK Institute and how their work is revolutionising cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
Cambridge Filmworks is an award winning local film, video and television production company producing a wide range of dynamic content.
