Our research in Cardiff

Last year we spent around £4 million in Wales on some of the UK’s leading scientific and clinical research. We work closely with Cardiff University, Cardiff and Vale Health Board and Velindre NHS Trust, focusing particularly on bowel, breast, urological and prostate cancers, as well as leukaemia.

“It’s very satisfying to know I might be helping other people too”

“We’re aiming to rapidly translate research into new treatments for cancer patients”
