Professor Axel Behrens

Scientific Director of the Convergence Science Centre

"I believe that multidisciplinary working across all areas of science is critical to help us address fundamental questions about cancer that are considered intractable using currently available methods, and to improve disease detection, diagnosis and expand the repertoire of effective therapies. It is my vision that together we will build a truly inter-organisational collaborative culture that will lead to further innovation that will create a paradigm shift in care for cancer patients."


Professor Axel Behrens is the inaugural Scientific Director of the Cancer Research UK Convergence Science Centre. He joined the Centre in June 2020 as a joint appointment between the Imperial College London and The Institute of Cancer Research, London
