Experimental Cancer Medicine Centres (ECMC) researchers are world-leading scientists and clinicians who drive the discovery, development and testing of new treatments to combat cancer. The funding supports over 200 staff involved in early phase trials and translational research.

The ECMC network is uniquely placed to help industry develop the cancer drugs of the future, bringing together an unrivalled team of world-leading clinical experts, working collaboratively to deliver early phase clinical trials.

Innovating for people affected by cancer is at the heart of what we do. We owe huge gratitude to the people who take part in early phase trials, helping to ensure that discoveries that are made in the laboratories of the ECMCs become treatments of the future.
