Lung cancer patients in Southampton are being matched to specific treatments based on the genetic weaknesses of their cancer cells as part of the National Lung Matrix trial.
Our research in Southampton
Last year we spent over £6 million on research in Southampton where more than 150 scientists, doctors and nurses are working faster and smarter to beat cancer sooner.
We’re bringing together expert minds from the University of Southampton and Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust to make sure discoveries are turned into benefits for people with cancer, sooner.

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