Our research in Edinburgh

We spent nearly £5 million last year in Edinburgh, funding researchers working on new ways to prevent, diagnose and cure cancer.  We work closely with our partners at The University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian, focusing particularly on bowel, brain and women’s cancers – including breast, endometrial and ovarian cancer – turning new discoveries into better treatments for patients.

Help us beat cancer sooner

We receive no government funding for our research. Our life-saving work relies on the money you give us.
