Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Centre
We support patients, families and healthcare professionals to make the right decisions around evidence-based treatment and care.
We want to help people live as well as they can for as long as they can, with the focus on symptom control and quality of life, not survival. The Centre works in all areas of palliative and supportive care. This includes cancer and non-cancer conditions, and the care of patients from diagnosis of a life-limiting condition through treatment, until death, or past cure to the late effects of cancer treatments.
Our ambition is to remain at the forefront of research in palliative care.
Our research portfolio spans across three themes - rehabilitation, patient experience and thrombosis.
Our experienced researchers work together on high quality research of national priority, directly relevant to patient and carer needs.
We provide free advice and support to academics, clinicians and other health professionals.
