Saving lives through our research

We’ve made oesophageal cancer one of our top priorities: it is one of four ‘hard to treat’ cancers highlighted in our 2014 strategy. This means we are increasing funding for research into oesophageal cancer, and looking for ways to boost the number of scientists working in the field. Below are some examples of what our researchers are doing to tackle oesophageal cancer right now.
