Our research in Southampton

Last year we spent nearly £5 million on research in Southampton where more than 150 scientists, doctors and nurses are working faster and smarter to beat cancer sooner.

We’re bringing together expert minds from the University of Southampton and Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust to make sure discoveries are turned into benefits for people with cancer, sooner.
