Institute of Cancer Therapeutics

The Institute of Cancer Therapeutics (ICT) is a multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Bradford working together to research, develop and commercialise new cancer treatments.

We are one of only a few centres in the UK with the research tools and expertise in-house to progress anticancer medicines and biomarkers from concept to clinic.

Welcome from the Director

I welcome you to the Institute of Cancer Therapeutics (ICT), the home of multidisciplinary teams working together to make fundamental discoveries and take them to the clinic.

Early diagnosis and personalised healthcare are the future to winning the battle against human disease including cancer. At the ICT, we fuse genetics, cell biology, medicinal chemistry and pharmacology to take medicines and diagnostics from concept to clinic. 

The ICT is world-renowned for research, training and partnership with industry. We are located in a purpose-built building carrying over 30 years’ experience in drug discovery, pharmacology, metabolite profiling and pharmacokinetics. We work closely with Stanford, Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, the University of Sheffield, the Bradford Royal Infirmary, St James Hospital and the Royal Hallamshire.
