Our research in Oxford

Thanks to your support, more than 650 researchers in Oxford are working hard to make cancer treatments kinder and more effective for patients.

We spent over £25 million last year on research in Oxford, bringing together teams from the Oxford University Hospitals Foundation Trust and over 25 University of Oxford Departments to beat cancer sooner.
