Cambridge Bio-Medical Campus
Cambridge Bio-Medical Campus, located in Cambridge, England, is one of the largest centres of health science and medical research in Europe. Managed by the University of Cambridge, the site is primarily funded by the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, and the UK government's Medical Research Council. It is home to Addenbrooke's Hospital and the university's medical school.
Departments currently included in the Bio-Medical campus and involved in research are:
- Addenbrooke's Hospital
- Clinical Department of Oncology
- The Clinical Investigation Ward
- The Clinical School
- The Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre
- The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research
- The Hutchinson/MRC Research Centre
- University Department of Oncology
- MRC Cancer Cell Unit
- The MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.
In addition, 3 new departments have already been completed, and are set to open later this year:
- The Cancer Research UK Institute
- Institute for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism
- New Medical Research Council buildings.
- 1 Addenbrooke's Hospital
- 2 The Clinical School
- 3 The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research
- 4 The Hutchinson/MRC Research Centre

Addenbrooke's Hospital is a large teaching hospital, and the central focus of the campus. (See main article). The following hospital departments are strongly involved with other areas of the campus in medical research:
Clinical Department of Oncology
The Clinical Investigation Ward
The Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre
The Clinical School
The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research
The Hutchinson/MRC Research Centre
The MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology
Cancer Research UK Institute
The Cambridge Cancer Research Institute was set up in a move to bring the scientific strengths of Cambridge to the forefront of cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention. The institute is purposely located in a position that allows researchers to move freely between a scientific environment, the laboratories of the surrounding campus and the clinical environment of the adjacent Regional Cancer Centre, part of Addenbrooke's Hospital. The institute is home to four main areas of research:
- Basic research, which involves looking into the cellular and molecular biology of cancer.
- Research into molecular imaging, genomics, bioinformatics and biomolecular modeling.
- Research that focuses on specific cancer sites, forming a bridge between the clinical and laboratory areas.
- Clinical investigations and trials, including population based studies into screening and prevention. These are to be conducted jointly with the Clinical Department of Oncology and other relevant departments of Addenbrooke's Hospital.
