Welcome to the Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology

The Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology (LICAP) is the largest of the seven Institutes of the School of Medicine at the University of Leeds. LICAP brings together scientists and clinicians to focus on excellence in science and the translation of that science to the benefit of patients. We train the next generation of scientists through excellent research-led teaching. Our research activity includes basic research but is heavily focused towards applied and clinical research in cancer and pathology. 

The Institute Director is Professor Tim Bishop. Professor Graham Cook is the Institute’s Research and Innovation lead and Dr Phil Burns is the Student Education lead. We are based at the St James’s University Hospital campus.
