The Institute has recently moved to a new facility that provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the art core services and advanced technologies.

PRECISION-Panc is an ambitious programme of multi-disciplinary research that aims to learn more about the molecular and genetic changes that drive pancreatic cancer, and to feed this understanding back into future clinical trials to match patients to particular treatments based on molecular profile. As part of this programme Dr Jen Morton runs a preclinical team working on preclinical models of pancreatic cancer and investigating how to use genetic and transcriptomic analyses to identify therapeutic vulnerabilities.
