Sarah Cannon Research UK
An important partnership has been established with the Sarah Cannon Research Institute and the newly established Early Phase Trials Unit in Harley Street directed by Dr Tobi Arkenau. This collaboration increases the access for our patients to the latest novel anti-cancer agents though a joint portfolio and establishes a research partnership focused on personalising cancer therapy.
