The Paterson building is the new £150m cancer research centre at The Christie’s site on Wilmslow Road in Withington. The building is part of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre and is one of the top cancer research centres in the world.
Together, a multidisciplinary team of scientists, researchers, clinicians, and operational staff – practise what is known as ‘team science’ – delivering clinical trials covering the full extent of the patient pathway, from prevention and novel treatments to living with and beyond cancer.

The new research centre replaces a previous building that was severely damaged in a fire 6 years ago. It is directly connected to The Christie hospital, allowing cells and samples from patients to be taken to the research lab in a matter of minutes.
The ambition is to foster collaboration, double the number of patients benefitting from clinical trials by 2030 and ultimately improve outcomes and survival rates.
A central component of the building is the new Cancer Research UK Cancer Biomarker Centre, situated on the third floor. The Cancer Biomarker Centre’s focus is on biomarkers – genes, proteins and other cancer-associated molecules – aiding in early cancer detection and diagnosis, and biomarkers that enable personalised management of a patient’s cancer, to determine which therapy will bring the most benefit.
The centre is Manchester’s scientific headquarters for the Alliance for Early Cancer Detection also houses a team focused on global genomics, and how cancer presents differently in people from different racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Working with and partnering IHP (Integrated Health Projects) on many Healthcare schemes over many years, Inscape was once again appointed to undertake the Healthcare IPS Duct Systems on this prestigious scheme following on from the success at Christies Macclesfield.
Inscape’s IPS Systems are a familiar site throughout the NHS and modelled around the required sanitary ware setting out required and accessibility and maintenance for all room types.
