UKRPIF award: £12.8 million
Officially opened: April 2015

The Oglesby Cancer Research Building supports research into cancer, spanning laboratory research through to clinical trials and patient care. The centre focuses on five research areas:

  • radiation therapy
  • lung cancer
  • women’s cancers
  • melanoma
  • haematological oncology.

Home to 150 scientists and 100 academic and support staff, the building is part of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre, a strategic research partnership between the University of Manchester, The Christie and Cancer Research UK. Both charities provided co-investment towards the project, alongside the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF) award.
