Our research by cancer type
For the past 120 years, we’ve been making discoveries that have saved countless lives. But we have so much more to do. Our strategy sets out how we'll accelerate progress towards a better future.
Over a century of life-saving research
Cancer Research UK was formed 20 years ago, in 2002. However, our history goes back much further, to 1902, with the founding of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund. We're the only charity to fund research into all 200 types of cancer. Find out more about the research we're doing now, and how our research has saved or improved the lives of cancer patients.
