Pioneering research into bladder cancer

The five-year £1m commitment from York Against Cancer to the University of York’s Jack Birch Unit is helping Professor Jenny Southgate and her team in a range of projects that are expected to help better understand bladder cancer and lead to improved treatments.

The unit collaborates with cancer research scientists across the world and Professor Southgate is often asked to share its findings at international seminars and conferences.

The goal of the Jack Birch Unit

The goal of the Jack Birch Unit is to ‘make a difference to the lives of people by reducing the incidence of cancer or providing better treatments’. Its research is investigating how the urothelial cells that line the inside of the bladder work together to form a protective barrier that is able to withstand constant exposure to urine.
