Welcome to the Paterson Redevelopment Project website.
We’d like you to read about our plans for a new world-leading cancer centre, which will transform our ability to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
Our goal for the Paterson Redevelopment Project is to create a purpose-built home for cancer research in Manchester.
There is a long history of research and new discoveries on The Christie site in Withington.
Over fifty years, the Paterson building became home to top-class research into lung cancer, melanoma, drug discovery and leukaemia.
In 2017, a devastating fire forced the evacuation of the Paterson building and the relocation of scientists and equipment.
In 2018, The Christie, The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK, announced plans for the future of the Paterson building site. The multi-million pound development will be led by The Christie on behalf of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC), an internationally renowned and hugely successful decade-long partnership between The Christie, The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK.
We need capacity to enable us to re-unite our researchers who have been displaced, and build expert teams of scientists, doctors and other healthcare workers.
We want to attract new talent from all over the world, and work together with other world-leading centres to make a real difference to the lives of people here, and around the globe.
