Cancer In The News
Cancer living outside the body, unravelling a cellular mystery and targeting ‘sleeping’ cancer cells: our latest cutting-edge science projects
Our rapid turn-around funding scheme aims to fund high-risk research that we wouldn’t normally fund.
At AACR 2017, thousands of doctors and scientists shared progress in cancer research. Read about the hottest topics.
In this post we’ll be exploring the gene editing technology CRISPR by answering some of the most common questions that pop up.

News digest – Nose swabs, ups and downs for engineered immune cells, ‘grab and go’ food and… ‘sticky’ cells?
Nose swabs, ups and downs for engineered immune cells, ‘grab and go’ food and can the ‘stickiness’ of cancer cells predict if they’ll spread?
We look at new research measuring how much pollution we're exposed to on our commutes, particularly in London.
