CRUK Manchester Institute 4-year PhD studentships

The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (CRUK MI) is a leading cancer research institute within The University of Manchester. It is core funded by Cancer Research UK, the largest independent cancer research organisation in the world.


The research spans the whole spectrum of cancer research, from programmes investigating the molecular and cellular basis of cancer, to those focused on translational research and the development of therapeutics.

The Institute has recently become a partner in the CRUK Centre of Excellence for Lung Cancer and is a key part of the Belfast-Manchester Movember Centre of Excellence for Prostate Cancer.
