Our aim is to raise awareness of the incredible Cancer Research UK projects taking place at the University of Birmingham, right here on our doorstep, and funds to support this ground-breaking work.

What we're funding in Birmingham

CRUK scheme graduate

"Alan Sugden from Kidderminster was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2009. He took part in a Cancer Research UK clinical trial called FOxTROT, led by Birmingham researcher Professor Dion Morton. ‘The trial definitely helped me’, said Alan. ‘Having the chemotherapy in advance of my operation helped shrink my tumour’. Alan’s health improved but just over a year later he was diagnosed with prostate cancer which was treated with radiotherapy followed by ongoing hormone therapy. Alan is currently doing well and enjoys spending time with his grandchildren. ‘Being diagnosed with cancer turned my life upside down – but thanks to research, I’m still here.’
