Our research is saving lives

Lung cancer is the third most common cancer in the UK. We played a vital role in reducing the burden of lung cancer through our work to lower smoking rates and protect people from second-hand smoke, but it's still the leading cause of cancer deaths in the UK. Lung cancer survival has lagged behind other cancers, so our scientists are leading the quest for better treatments to bring hope to patients.
