Cardiff

UK map showing CardiffCardiff is the home of one of our Cancer Research UK Centres. The Cardiff Centre is helping set the pace for national and international progress in genetics and cancer biomarkers. Researchers at the Centre are focusing on the biology and treatment of bowel, breast and urological cancers and leukaemia. They are also working on how to make sure cancer is detected earlier.

Cancer Research UK is increasing its contribution to research in Cardiff by spending an extra £2 million over three years - a massive boost to keep Cardiff leading the way on cancer research in Wales.

Cancer Research UK provides funding for the Wales Cancer Trials Network based in Cardiff. The network provides direct support to 18 hospitals across Wales, and aims to boost the number of people with cancer taking part in clinical trials.

Our Children's Cancer Trials Team co-ordinates groundbreaking trials in 21 centres across the UK and Ireland, including the Children's Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. These trials bring cutting-edge science from the lab to the bedside, making innovative new treatments available to children with cancer.

Below are some of the highlights of our research in Cardiff.
