Ludwig Cancer Research is an international collaborative network of acclaimed scientists that has pioneered cancer research and landmark discovery for more than 40 years. Ludwig combines basic science with the ability to translate its discoveries and conduct clinical trials to accelerate the development of new cancer diagnostics and therapies. Since 1971, Ludwig has invested nearly $2.7 billion in life-changing science through the not-for-profit Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and the six U.S.-based Ludwig Centers.

Scientists at the Oxford Branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research focus on a variety of subjects of importance to cancer research. These range from intracellular signaling, genomics and epigenetics to tumor immunology, oxygen sensing and angiogenesis. With stable core funding from Ludwig Cancer Research and access to state-of-the-art facilities in the renowned academic environment of the University of Oxford at the Old Road Research Campus, our PIs have both the opportunity and means to pursue groundbreaking basic and translational scientific research.
