Our research in Oxford

Thanks to your support, more than 450 researchers in Oxford are working hard to make cancer treatments kinder and more effective for patients.

We spend nearly £22 million every year on research in Oxford, bringing together teams from the Oxford University Hospitals Trust and over 25 University of Oxford Departments to beat cancer sooner.

Proud to support research

Mum of two, Alison was diagnosed with a rare type of liver cancer, fibromellar hepatocellular carcinoma, at just 32 years old. ‘If it wasn't for research, survivors like me wouldn't be here now.'

‘I work on a gene that is lost in most cancers. The more we understand this lost gene, the better chance we have to increase patient’s survival and that is what keeps me going, day after day.’
