Welcome to the Centre for Tumour Microenvironment (TME) where our main mission is to discover how to exploit the TME in the control of cancer growth and spread. We conduct state-of-the-art research into the TME, bringing together internationally-recognised scientists and clinicians. Our central aim is to understand the biology of the human TME using novel and relevant in vitro and in vivo models in research that is always led by information from patient samples and clinical problems. We aim to harness this knowledge to identify new treatment strategies. Working closely together with our Centre for Experimental Cancer Medicine we are well-placed to implement our findings in clinical practice. Our Centre is embedded in one of the UK’s top medical schools thus offering excellent opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations.
