The network was launched in 2007 through a joint investment from Cancer Research UK, the National Institute for Health Research in England, and the Health Departments for Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Since then more than £70 million of ECMC funding has been supporting staff members across the UK.
The ECMC Network is made of up 18 adult centres and 11 paediatric locations. Each has unique capabilities, with world-leading expertise, yet it is collaboration that gives the Network the edge in research excellence.
The collaborative nature of the research emphasises the importance of a bench to bedside continuum linking the researcher and the clinician, with the patient at the centre of this process
