The Mission

We are at the forefront of the changing face of medicine and healthcare as researchers and doctors look to treat patients by understanding the mechanisms of disease rather than simply treat the symptoms. 

This means various fields of science are collaborating as physicists, mathematicians and engineers are now working with clinicians to develop new and more effective treatments. Cambridge, with its rich history of research and innovation, is ideally placed to be the global leader in healthcare.

We are in the process of redeveloping our strategy to ensure we are an organisation which is capable of driving forward innovation by working with others. This process involves talking to many of the leading thinkers and members of the healthcare sector with the aim of having the new strategy in place by 2017.
