Business Beats Cancer Edinburgh

Business Beats Cancer Edinburgh brings together business leaders to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK. The Business Beats Cancer Edinburgh board is one of a growing network of boards across the UK. Each board organises an exciting annual fundraising event that brings together businesses in its local area to beat cancer.




Being involved with the inaugural Business Beats Cancer Edinburgh dinner was genuinely uplifting. It was a great evening in aid of an amazing cause. I’m delighted to hear that this will be an annual event and even more so that the plan is for all cities to host a fundraiser. The spirit of generosity and optimism really made this a networking event with a difference. 

I’d urge all businesses to get involved. It’s such an important cause, as so many of us know all too well. With Business Beats Cancer, we all have a chance to support the science that really does save lives.

What we're funding in Edinburgh

Our researchers in Edinburgh have everything they need to tackle cancer. From the best equipment to plenty of people to collaborate with, they are breaking new ground every day.For example, Professor David Cameron is running important clinical trials to find the best way to treat people with breast cancer.
Professor Malcolm Dunlop is studying the faulty genes that underpin bowel cancer, to understand how our genes influence the risk of developing the disease and the chances of surviving it. Dr Steve Pollard and his team are developing potential new treatments for the most common type of brain tumour in adults, known as glioblastoma multiforme. And Dr Sara Erridge is running a clinical trial in Edinburgh to find the best way to treat a type of brain tumour called glioma.
