Increasing the precision of cancer treatments

To improve cancer therapies, our researchers are focusing on understanding the biology of cancer and the development of more precise cancer treatments. 

  • We are capitalising on Imperial’s expertise in engineering, evolution and drug resistance to improve understanding of tumour progression, and developing technologies that better identify patients at risk of relapse
  • Our researchers are developing new surgical robots and imaging and sensing technologies that make it easier to detect the boundaries between healthy and cancerous tissue
  • We are developing drug discovery research, including the use of nanotechnologies for smart drug delivery
