We are dedicated to providing a tailored approach to all our patients giving them every possibility of a successful outcome.

One of the ways in which we are really unique is that we can direct our research interests so specifically. Each and every one of our scientists works on a research project which is informed in some way by Professor Dalgleish’s interests and the treatment he gives patients. Cancer patients are his inspiration, and the reason the ICVI exists.
