We spend nearly £6million every year in Leeds, enabling the smartest minds to work together on improving outcomes for cancer patients, not just in Yorkshire, but all over the world. Our partnership with the University of Leeds and the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust means researchers can work faster and smarter to beat cancer, sooner.
