The CMDL is a key strategic resource for the Integrative Cancer Medicine (ICM) Programme aimed to translate cutting edge genomic methods for advanced diagnosis and clinical management of cancer supported by the CRUK Cambridge Centre and the NIHR-BRC. (http://www.cambridgecancercentre.org.uk/research/cancer-molecular-diagnostics-lab-cmdl). This resource is one of the major resources in the ICM programme that also includes imaging, tissue resources, data integration, and clinical science. The genomic data and analysis is an integral and critical component of the ICM programme. The pioneering Integrated Cancer Medicine Program (ICM) and the newly launched Mark Foundation Institute for Integrated Cancer Medicine (MFICM), currently running in the CRUK Cambridge Centre, bring together knowledge, expertise and emerging technologies to establish a personalised cancer medicine strategy that diagnoses cancer early and individually stratifies, treats and monitors all patients (http://www.cambridgecancercentre.org.uk/).
