Oxford University given £2m cancer boost

Cancer research scientists at the University of Oxford have been awarded more than £2m by a panel of experts as one of four research centres in the United Kingdon to get a share of £50m.

The money will be used to develop cancer imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET).

Equipment will be developed to allow scientists to watch cells in action by tracing radioactive markers injected into patients.

Doctors will then be able to identify earlier which treatments work best for individual patients.

The grants, from Cancer Research UK, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC), are part of a nationwide investment in cancer imaging over the next five years.
