The Experimental Cancer Medicine Centres (ECMC) Network includes 18 adult and 11 paediatric centres. Each ECMC has unique and world-leading expertise within early phase clinical research. Collaboration across this UK network allows them to be ahead in generating new cancer treatments.
The foundation of each ECMC is a partnership between the local NHS Trusts and the University, bringing together university-based health researchers with hospital-based clinical staff and researchers.
The ECMC Network aims to act as an efficient and effective network that will assist in the delivery of early-phase cancer studies between research partners to enable faster and more personalised patient benefit.
Through collaboration and teamwork within the community, the ECMC Network aims to bring together world-leading laboratory and patient-based clinical research to build a UK-wide network of clinicians and scientists.
