Research And Trials
We look at how research could help to adapt and improve treatment for older patients, including inclusive clinical trials and pre-habilitation.
Children in England with high-risk neuroblastoma will now be offered a cancer drug that could extend their life.
DIPG is a fatal childhood brain tumour. But our scientists are unpicking its biology in the hope of finding new ways to tackle this hard to treat cancer.
From targeting cancer stem cells to reawakening sleeping cells, research is finding the answers to how brain tumours develop.
Two over-the-counter, widely available drugs could help cut cases of oesophageal cancer in people at higher risk of the disease.
An antifungal medication, commonly prescribed for toenail infections, could help eliminate dormant cells within bowel tumours, according to new research.
By revealing a tumour’s past, our scientists are opening the possibility of predicting its future. This could help make cancer treatment more personal.
An experimental breath test can identify oesophageal and stomach cancers in people who already have cancer, according to a new study.
By studying small differences in our DNA, called SNPs, our scientists are showing how these could be used to help prevent cancer in the future.
The Government has announced it will double a recent funding boost for brain tumour research following the death of Dame Tessa Jowell.
