Our strategy

A scientist

For the past 120 years, we’ve been making discoveries that have saved countless lives. But we have so much more to do. Our strategy sets out how we'll accelerate progress towards a better future.

Saving lives through our research

Cancer in children and young people is different to cancer in adults, from the types of cancer to the impacts of treatment and the long-term side effects that many survivors experience. We’re working to overcome the specific challenges holding back progress to help more children and young people survive cancer with a good quality of life.

Below are some examples of what our researchers are doing right now to help improve survival and reduce long-term side effects for children and young people with cancer.
