The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the worlds most 
influential cancer research institutes,with an outstanding record of 
achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first 
convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, 
laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer 
is a genetic disease. 

Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating
cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised
cancer treatment. Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, 
Professor Paul Workman FRS, the ICR is ranked as the UKs leading academic
research centre. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden, we are 
rated in the top four cancer centres globally. 
The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best 
minds in the world to join us in our mission  to make the discoveries that
defeat cancer.

and provision of canSAR, the world's largest public cancer drug discovery 
resource. The team sits between the Department of Data Science, led by 
Dr. Bissan Al-Lazikani and the CRUK Cancer Therapeutics Unit - 
one of the leading academic drug discovery centres in the world. 
canSAR ( integrates biological, genetic, 
chemical and pharmacology data for cancer research, and employs data 
science and machine learning approaches to inform the discovery of more 
effective drugs. CanSAR is used by >150,000 researchers worldwide, across 
both academia and industry. We have recently been awarded a 5-year CRUK 
Strategic Project Award to enhance and expand the content and utility of 
the public canSAR.
