Our research in London

Last year we spent over £129 million on cancer research in London to find better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.

We fund groundbreaking work at the Francis Crick Institute and our four Cancer Research UK Centres at Barts, Imperial, the Institute of Cancer Research and UCL. Together they are ready and equipped to take on cancer.
