John van Geest Cancer Research Centre

Situated on the Nottingham Trent University Clifton Campus, the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre is a world leading facility carrying out research into primarily breast and prostate cancer. The work centres around the discovery of biomarkers, and our scientists are seeking to develop better and more accurate ways to diagnose cancer, in order to help patients achieve better outcomes. These subtle differences between cancer cells and normal cells can also be taken into trial as potential immunotherapies; vaccines that harness the body’s own immune system to combat cancer.

The running costs of the centre are underwritten by the university meaning that 100% of donations received go directly to the research. The centre houses purpose built labs, cutting edge technology and a team of career scientists, working collaboratively with clinical partners and other researchers across the East Midlands and internationally.

With startling new statistics indicating that 1 in 2 of us will develop some form of cancer in our lives, it is vital that we understand this complex disease in order to save lives. The centre is running a major fundraising campaign – Cracking the cancer code – and is looking to work with organisations and individuals to help support the cost of the research.
