To mark World Cancer Day last month, Manchester University created a roundup of cancer research completed in the last 12 months, providing insight to past cancer treatments and present achievements.
At the same time, Sir Salvador Moncada, the university's institute director of cancer sciences, says he is looking ahead to challenges in creating new treatments for the disease.
One achievement reached in the previous year was the opening of the new building for the Manchester Cancer Research Centre in June, located in Withington, that will house the researchers that are part of the partnership between Cancer Research UK, the University of Manchester, and the Christie NHS Foundation Trust.
Manchester also produced quite a bit of new research, leading to new finds in cancer therapies and treatments being published monthly. This research has led to the discovery of graphene as a treatment for cancer, as well as leading to anastrozole replacing tamoxifen as a major therapy for breast cancer.
Manchester partners with pharmaceutical companies including AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline, allowing the research to lead to new drugs being introduced to the market.
