The Centre marks a new milestone for cancer research in Wales. Our work will ensure that future cancer patients will benefit from modern, improved cancer prevention and screening, diagnosis and treatments.
“We will perform and support cancer research of the highest quality, with a focus on collaboration, and excellence as a minimum requirement. With this approach, we aim to provide patients and their families with an individualised plan that gives each person the best possible cancer care and our community the best possible cancer services. In doing so, the Centre will also add to Wales’ reputation for research excellence.”
