Cancer Research UK is the largest independent funder of cancer research in the world. They support the best scientists, doctors and nurses to discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer across the world. And they rely entirely on donations to make it happen.
Since 1902 they've been funding cancer research through research institutes, centres and top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. Seven of our scientists have received Nobel Prizes for their research. Our discoveries have impacted people around the world, as they pioneered both radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
