Cancer Institute


The UCL Cancer Institute, with its 50 scientific group leaders, 32 clinical scientists, and 50 honorary clinical consultants, is an internationally competitive centre for cancer research which focuses on excellence in training of cancer clinicians and scientists, and contributing to the best possible clinical care of patients with cancer. The Cancer Institute is the nucleus for the UCL Cancer Research UK Centre and the Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre, with affiliations to a number of teaching hospitals. Our strength is the collaboration of researchers who work on fundamental biological mechanisms with those who translate this knowledge into clinical applications. We have excellent research facilities, a full-time postgraduate tutor to mentor students, a conference travel fund, and networking/careers events for our students.

Staff View

"In addition to UCL and UCL Hospitals, London in general has all you need in terms of basic science and resources as well as clinical oncologists that want to team up with basic scientists to develop potent translational programs in cancer, autoimmunity, genetic diseases and so on."

Dr Sergio Quezada

Group Leader

Student View

"For the core module we had an extremely wide variety of lecturers who were at the cutting edge of their field, which gave an in-depth look at the field of cancer research as a whole. The summer lab project has been a great opportunity to develop current lab skills and learn new ones."
