At the Francis Crick Institute, Dr Samra Turajilic is mapping how the genetic makeup of kidney tumours changes over time and affects how well they respond to treatment.
Our research on kidney cancer
Thanks to research, survival from kidney cancer is improving all the time. In the 1970s, almost a quarter of people survived their disease for more than ten years, now it's half. But more people than ever are being diagnosed with the disease, so we’re working hard to bring forward new life-saving advances.
