About Ludwig Cancer Research
The Oxford Branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research is based within the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford. Founded in 2007 under the Directorship of Professor Xin Lu, the unit is mainly housed in the Old Road Campus Research Building. Some groups are within the nearby Target Discovery Institute and Big Data Institute.
Ludwig combines basic research with the ability to translate its discoveries and conduct clinical trials to accelerate the development of new cancer diagnostics and therapies. Hear more about Ludwig Cancer Research and the Oxford Branch in this film made on the Branch's 10th Anniversary in Oxford (read the transcript of the video here):
The Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM) is a large multi-disciplinary department that links high quality clinical research with medical application.
Ludwig Cancer Research is also a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), the national membership organisation of leading medical and health research charities in the UK. We support the AMRC position statement on the use of animals in research.
