About Us


CanGene-CanVar is a multi-centre programme with investigators from seven different organisations across the UK:

1) Institute of Cancer Research (lead site)

2) University of Cambridge

3) University of Southampton

4) Public Health England

5) University of Oxford

6) University of Manchester

7) St George's, University of London

In addition to the lead investigators, we have a number of programme research staff including Post Docs, Bioinformaticians, Data Managers, and PhD students working across the program. 


To ensure our research is delivered to the highest standard, we have appointed committees to regularly review areas of the programme and share their expertise. 


These are: 

  • Science Advisory Committee

  • CanVIG-UK Steering and Advisory Group (CSTAG)

  • Patient Reference Panel


  • Twitter Clean
