UCL Research Domains



The Cancer Theme brings together researchers (including clinicians, clinician-scientists and scientists) from across UCL who are tackling all aspects of cancer laboratory and clinical research. They are working towards making fundamental discoveries about the molecular mechanisms leading to cancer, translating these discoveries into new therapeutics, and conducting clinical trials that will impact on patient care.

The Theme also seeks to develop training programmes to cultivate the next generation of cancer scientists and clinicians.

The Cancer Theme encompasses biology of the tumour cell; functions of molecular pathways dysregulated in cancer; genetic and epigenetic abnormalities in cancer; genetic markers predicting outcome and responses to therapy; experimental tumour models; gene, cellular and targeted therapeutics.

The cancer types where we are building critical mass for internationally competitive research include: childhood cancer; cancer affecting teenagers and young adults; haematological malignancy (including leukaemia and lymphoma); ovarian cancer; brain cancer; sarcoma; lung, and head and neck cancer.
