A new medical centre with the potential to develop groundbreaking treatments for cancer patients and enhance personalised medicine has been launched at Queen's University in Belfast
The £10 million centre for excellence will be based in the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology and employ 17 members of staff.
The centre will be work on developing a laboratory to focus on diagnostics which can be used to predict cancer patients' response to treatment.

The project has been part financed by Invest NI, which has pledged £5.8m towards its cost.
