Will you help create Manchester's life-saving cancer centre?

One in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in our lives. Here at your University, we’re tackling the disease from all angles - from developing novel new treatments to finding ways to detect cancer earlier.

But in 2017, this life-saving research suffered a major setback. Manchester’s cancer research centre - the Paterson building - was destroyed in a devastating fire. Hundreds of researchers were displaced to temporary labs across the region.

Today, you can help create a brand new cancer centre that’s bigger and better than before. Will you join in, and play your part in re-writing the future of cancer?

A hub for discovery

Your gift will create a world-leading cancer centre twice the size of the old Paterson building. It will contain one of the largest concentrations of doctors, nurses and researchers in Europe. And it will pave the way for amazing discoveries that save lives around the world.

Finding answers to cancer

When you're dealing with cancer, there's no time to spare. The building you create will be purpose-built to speed up the pace of discovery. It will bring clinicians and researchers together, so they can join forces to develop and test new treatments. And it will mean ground-breaking new therapies reach patients much sooner.

Giving patients new hope

Your gift will bring new hope to millions of families around the world. The new centre will be just metres from Europe's largest cancer hospital, The Christie, putting people with cancer at the heart of everything we do. The University's partnerships with the NHS and Cancer Research UK make this the perfect place to turn scientific progress into life-saving solutions for patients.

Play your part today

Thanks to generous donors and funders around the world, construction on the new building is well underway. Now you can help keep this life-saving project on track.

We're hoping to finish work on the new centre at the end of 2022. But to make sure that happens, we urgently need to raise the final funds to complete the building, and get it ready for our scientists to move in.

That's where you can help. Together we can make discoveries that will re-write the future and save countless lives. Please join in today, and help create a world where many more people survive cancer.

It's quick and easy to give to The University of Manchester from wherever you are in the world. More information about giving from outside the UK can be found in our frequently asked questions
