In accordance with the decision taken by the Professor Dr. Niaz Ahmed Akhter, Vice-Chancellor, University of the Punjab, a Cancer Research Center (CRC) has been recently established. This center will be initially located at Cancer Biology Lab, MMG. At CRC we plan to establish multiple cancer-related research facilities that will be made accessible (terms and conditions applied) to all PU faculty members and students. Research work at CRC will focus both on understanding the basic pathways/mechanisms of cancer and on clinical studies which can be more rapidly beneficial for the cancer patients. In addition to that CRC will also promote cancer research in a variety of critical ways—by encouraging collaboration across various PU departments/institutes; organizing lecture series/workshops/other events, and building academic linkages with other national/international institutes working on cancer.
