The Wales Cancer Research Network (WCRN) is part of the National Institute for Social Care and Health Research Clinical Research Centre (NISCHR CRC).
Our vision is to support today’s research to develop and deliver tomorrow’s best care.
Our mission is to increase the quality and quantity of people-centred research in Wales.
WCRN is working to:

• involve people by providing opportunities to participate in research and research development;
• increase capacity by providing a competent research workforce to work with the NHS to meet cancer research standards and targets;
