In 2008 Nottingham Trent University received a major award to create the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre which provides the University’s world-class team of cancer research scientists with an outstanding environment for their research. The Centre had its official opening in November 2010.

1 in 2 of us will develop cancer at some point in our lives; however the advances made in cancer research have doubled survival rates over the last 40 years. The scientists working within the centre work with front-line hospital staff with the aim of developing new treatments for breast and prostate cancers, two of the most common cancers in the UK.

The impact that the Centre’s world-class research programme makes depends upon the generosity of people who share our aim; to positively influence the future of people who suffer from cancer. Your support will make a difference, helping our scientists to continue their life-saving research and to purchase vital analytical equipment, enabling us to try and beat this disease.
