Our organisation

Scientific Advisory Board
The Centre is guided and supported by an international Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) that is shared with the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute.
 
Our governance and management
The core partners of the CRUK Cambridge Centre are Cancer Research UK, the University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Representatives from these three organisations form the Governance Board of the Centre. They are responsible for the overall strategic planning for the Centre, and meet three times a year.

The CRUK Cambridge Centre is run by an Executive Committee, who determine the strategy and budget allocations across the Centre. The committee is composed of representatives from each of the 12 research Programmes and 10 Associate Directors.
 
The day-to-day operations of the Centre are carried out by a small management team based in the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, located near Addenbrooke’s Hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus

Funding innovative cancer science
The CRUK Cambridge Centre is funded by Cancer Research UK, the University of Cambridge, the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Medical Research Council.
