Manchester Breast Centre Report 2019-2020

The Manchester Breast Centre Report for 2019-2020 highlights the vigorous activity in breast research in Manchester that has an overall goal of improving outcomes for breast cancer patients across the world.


Nearly 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, making breast cancer the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK. Researching treatment and ways to prevent all types of the disease is the main aim of the Manchester Breast Centre. Some of this research is very specific, focusing on the unique characteristics of a particular form of breast cancer. However, much of our work will be of benefit to everyone with the disease.
