We're at a turning point


它建立了大约4个目标 - 发现,检测,预防和治疗 - 以便理解癌症基本生物学的进展会导致新的预防措施,测试和治疗。

为了实现这一目标,我们将在未来五年内花费15亿英镑,投资创意人士和变革性研究。我们将支持减少癌症不平等现象并改善每个人的结果的研究。和我们将参与受癌症影响的人in our work.

Opportunities for researchers



We support a broad portfolio of discovery research, including basic biology, genetics, and immunology, engineering and physical sciences applied to cancer

Explore our grant funding and other opportunities to accelerate your research

Scientist working in lab


We have a robust portfolio of clinical studies that aim to improve outcomes for people with cancer. We will support studies that are informed by discoveries about the mechanism of how cancer evolves and that enhance understanding of underlying cancer biology

Explore response mode funding, initiatives and infrastructure for clinical and translational researchers


Prevention and population



Early detection and diagnosis

We want to detect cancer at the earliest possible point of intervention by understanding the underlying biology of cancers and the transition from health to early disease

Scientist working in lab

Therapeutic innovation

We're embarking on an exciting and novel approach to therapeutic innovation, uniting the strengths of our established drug discovery engines, our network of world-class biology, cutting-edge platform technology, and clinical expertise. This focus on accelerating the discovery and development of new therapeutics forms an integral part of our new innovation engine – Cancer Research Horizons.
