What we do

NCRI runs a number of different strands of work to evaluate the cancer research landscape and facilitate coordination: The NCRI Clinical Studies Groups, the annual NCRI Cancer Conference, the NCRI Cancer Research Database and the NCRI Cancer Clinical Trials Unit Group make up our core business. We also run an evolving programme of initiatives to address research gaps or barriers and capitalise on scientific opportunities that are too large or complex to be taken forward by one organisation alone.
