Organisation profile

The University of Aberdeen has established a multidisciplinary cancer research programme. Key people from across the University and NHS Grampian involved in all aspects of cancer research, including cell and molecular biology, pathology, surgery, oncology, primary care, health psychology, health data science and public health work collaboratively, delivering patient-centred research to advance understanding, treatment, prevention and care of all cancers. Our aim is to translate new laboratory findings into the clinic to directly improve patient outcomes – a bench-to-bedside (and back again) approach.

Working across 4 research Institutes within the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition, and NHS Grampian, we cover various aspects of cancer research, from basic laboratory cell and molecular biology, through traditional clinical disciplines, also in areas of health services research.
