NIHR CANCER RESEARCH NETWORK (NCRN)
The NIHR Cancer Research Network (NCRN) is a managed research network mapping directly onto the NHS cancer service networks across England. Funding for NCRN supports the provision of research nurses, data managers and the expertise of clinicians, radiologists, pharmacists and pathologists. The NCRN Coordinating Centre is based in Leeds under the direction of Professor Matt Seymour. The NCRN works closely with equivalent organisations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The NCRN Coordinating Centre also manages the NCRI Clinical Studies Groups.
The NCRN Coordinating Centre works closely with the NCRI-accredited Clinical Trials Units, helping them to work together to share experience and develop common solutions to problems.
The NCRI Board maintains strategic oversight over the work of NCRN and ensures that it fully integrates with other NCRI activities.
