University College London

Towards the control of cancer


Research scientists and doctors at University College Medical School have pioneered cancer treatments involving new drugs, lasers, replacement blood cells and even antibiotics. Aiming to improve clinical services to patients, the university has introduced the Counselling Research Centre which has evolved specialist training programmes for those who work predominantly with cancer patients. The Department of Imaging and the National Centre for Laser Medicine and Surgery have worked closely together to pioneer techniques to destroy tumours within the body.
