The research activities at the Hutchison/MRC Research Centre cover a wide range of areas related to cancer and cell biology, with a focus on translating basic scientific findings into clinical applications. Groups within the building are studying mechanisms of DNA replication and genome stability, new approaches to the diagnosis of various cancer and early cellular development.
