Cancer doesn’t discriminate and neither do our discoveries. They benefit people everywhere, regardless of where they were made.

Research never stops: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, our high tech labs and the smartest minds keep going, working hard to find the discoveries that will help beat cancer. Those discoveries will help people all over the UK.

By bringing together local Universities, NHS trusts and charities, we have created world-leading hubs of research in cities across the UK.  We ensure our researchers have access to everything they need to beat cancer. From the best bits of kit, to other people to collaborate with, they break new ground every day.

Our research network allows the smartest minds to work together, locally, to ensure discoveries are turned into benefits for people with cancer everywhere, sooner.
