About us

In July 2020 the Mesothelioma UK Research Centre was established at the University of Sheffield, funded by the charity Mesothelioma UK. The Research Centre is based in the School of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery.


Aims of the centre

The aim of the Mesothelioma UK Research Centre – Sheffield is to conduct a portfolio of robust and rigorous research with a reputation for excellence. The goal is for the research to benefit the care of people diagnosed with mesothelioma and their families.

The Research Centre is generously funded by Mesothelioma UK, a charity and national specialist resource centre, specifically for the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma. Mesothelioma UK is dedicated to providing specialist mesothelioma information, support and education, and to improving care and treatment for all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers.
