Cancer Research UK

Cancer affects people all over the world. To beat it, we need to work together.

About Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK is the largest independent funder of cancer research in the world. We support the best scientists, doctors and nurses to discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer across the world. And we rely entirely on donations to make it happen.

Since 1902 we’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 we pioneered both radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
